AHL Numbers he scored:
29pts in 36games.
NHL Numbers he scored:
23pts in 42games.

Playing more games then he ever had in his entire pro career he was gassed at the end of the season, prompting a demotion back to the minors. This year will be his first full season and his tenacity and creativity the X-Factory can easily build upon his .5 pp/g production and be the top6 LW everyone is looking for.
I think that might be a little over optimistic. But I like your thinking.

Prediction: He scores an OT winner that wins a playoff round for us, sometime in the next 2 years.

Won't say what year, or what round. That's as daring as I will get..for now.
