For once I'm the one who thinks you guys are underestimating a player. To me he has the size, skill, skating ability and poise with the puck at his early age to become a regular contributor on the top 6 in the NHL. He excels at using his frame to protect the puck. Reminds me of a young Sundin but not quite the same offensive skills though. But for this year yeah anything north of 45 points would be quite the surprise. People tend to forget players take a really long time to develop.
