I agree its not all about production, but it does play a role.
He was in his team's top 3, in fact he was 3 points off first place.

That post had nothing to do with him being a captain so much as him receiving a ridiculous amount of hype.

and yeah 55 for a rookie is good, but its not unheard of. I just feel like he's getting a lot of hype that isn't justified by his on paper stats. Especially considering RNH put up the same points in less games.
He lived up to it and then some. 20+30 for a rookie is great. That made him a legitimate top six option despite coming straight from major junior.

What on paper stats aren't there? You're just talking about goals assists and points and not being very considerate. Landeskog has always by definition been a player who's value is far greater than those numbers show. He's not a #1 scoring center (RNH who should outscore him), he's an elite complementary winger who just had his first good season.
