Dawes may not be a valid comparison as a player, but it's valid in that we've had 50-goal scorers in the CHL before. It just goes to show that weaknesses in a players game may not be as apparent in Juniors and will be exposed in the NHL. Dawes major limitations were size and skating. Thomas's is size and who knows at this point if something else may hold him back.

My only point is that as great as 50 goals is, you have to stay a little bit grounded in reality here. Kreider has a lot less to overcome.
