I have no idea why people just assumed that a 21 year old in his first year as a pro in either the NHL or the minors would be at the peak of his play. Nobody said this explicitly, but nobody expected him to go significantly above his previous performance.

And to be honest, I don't expect a 22 year old sophomore to peak either. He has another 2-3 years of growth as a player. He will get physically even stronger, and I really think he can elevate his offense.

Let's keep in mind that he was originally thought of as a future offensive defenseman.
