But expecting a 60 pts season in the CHL from the 3rd overall offensive center is a pretty low expectation.
When you draft, you don't look to draft a great junior player, you look to draft a great NHL player.

If he can become that perennial first line center we've been looking for for a long time at the NHL level, then he can go at get 30 points at the junior level for all I care.
