I don't think it's a fair expectation at all. That's a nearly guaranteed Calder, basically. Expecting a guaranteed Calder is a
unfair. First of all we don't know what kind of PP time he'll get and that will have an impact on his numbers.
I expect something in the 15-23 goals range, 20-25 assists range for his first year.
I think long term he'll be a 70 point player in the NHL, and it's possible he has a huge rookie year, but to set the expectations that high doesn't do anything except set up a huge negative freeroll.
