Personally, I think people apply certain limited "ceilings" to too many prospects. Not every NHL player that scored 30 in the past seasons has shown such promise at the junior level, so I generally would not be quick to dismiss a "30 goal potential" for any prospect, not only Ducks prospects.
It's obviously difficult to say how the translation process works, as that's something that goes beyond looking at certain trademark-qualities - or lack thereof - as most do when trying to project that. So yes, I would have a very hard time finding a reason to answer your question with "no".
