To add some perspective to those delude by "it's so easy a cave man could do it"; Since 2000-2001 there have been 3,212 player/seasons of players age 25 or younger. Of those 3,212 player/seasons, only 345 of the player /seasons had the player score 50 or more points.

Even at the raw number, only 11% have reached that plateau before age 26. If one were to remove those players which had multiple 50+ point seasons, the percentage would be even fewer. Filter for draft selection location etc., it gets into pretty rarified air to have a youngster enter the NHL and produce 50+ points in a season.

Something for those in love with propects to consider.
