That's my point. As a 17 year old(the age of most players in their draft year) he was about on par with Hall, RNH, Stamkos, Tavares and Seguin(all in the 104-106 point range). So before the WJC when he had 21 goals/53 points in 26 games(a 55 goal/140 point pace over the same 69 games RNH played in his draft year), I wasn't getting caught up in the "generational talent" talk because he was just doing what he probably should be as an 18 year old of his skill level in junior.
