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.
Yeah, I share this opinion. 35-48 points is what I expect for year one. Ultimately he'll go higher but he'll likely follow a similar pattern as most really good players who didn't come blasting into the league with 60 points. I'm happy to be pleasantly surprised but my expectations are more realistic.
