What in the holy ****ing hell is this based on?

This is his first full year, at 21 years old (last year was only 8 games). He has 42 points in his first 86 games, most of those games spent on the 3rd line with limited minutes in Vancouver.

Derek Roy's first full year was at 22. First 86 games he had 40 points.

Ok, so the facts so far don't agree with you. What about potential?

Derek was drafted #32 overall. Hodgson #8 overall. Hodgson was and is projected to have #1C potential. Derek Roy I don't recall, but obviously he's a borderline #1 center.

Junior stats to give a better insight into capability?

I'll let you figure out who is who.
