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.
With Hitchcock as coach, expecting anything above 50 points is reaching if you ask me.
