A defenseman in Hitchcock's system scored above 50 points this year. Long term, like his 3d-4th season in the league I don't think 70 points is unreasonable given his skills even in a Hitchcock system. There's plenty of power play time. He's a significantly better finisher than Backes and Oshie who were in the mid-50s. Andy McDonald is a PPG player in a Hitchcock system.
