How do you know all this??? how many times have you seen him play??? or are you just going by the hype that`s going around for this guy. Scoring 70 goals in todays NHL just isn`t going to happen. The best snipers in the league are struggling to hit 50 but an 18 year old who hasn`t played 1 NHL game and hasn`t been drafted will automatically reach the 60-70 goal mark. Have you ever heard of Alexander Daigle? He was super hyped aswell and look whats happened to him. I`m not comparing him to daigle but you never know what`s going to happen with your prospects.
