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.
I didn't mean to quote you... Stupid iPhone.
I meant his rookie year. I think he will most likely get 3rd line minutes. That combined with his first year on smaller ice and playing against far superior players, I think more than 50 is expecting too much.
But that's just my opinion.
