45 points? That would be a decline in his production from so far.
I'm of the mindset that teams will be a bit more keen on him thus making it more difficult for him to continue this pace.

Additionally, the last two 2nd halfs were after WJC appearances where he gained confidence by being the #1 LW on Team USA.

He has no luxury for that this year.

Just because he is trending a certain direction doesn't mean or promise that he will continue to trend in that direction.

Lastly, I would love to see 42 games played. I just expect to see 39 games played.

23+ goals and 22 assists is still a very fine season.
