He has more room to develop and grow and he is willing to put the work in. I think 40-45 points is well within reach for him if he stays healthy.
And something to remember - he was placed on defense by the Kings during critical development years, a failed experiment that was not without its consequences. He is only a few years removed from that. And even if he never touches 45 points, he does a lot of good things on the ice, and does them consistently - the lack of which is what bothers me so much about Wolski.
