Hes really talented but I dont believe he has the elite offensive upside like a Doughty, Pietrangelo, Karlsson have.
Offense and his fluid skating are his best attributes. If he's given that #2 role behind Phaneuf and gets to play on the #1 PP (he did quite a bit of that after Carlyle became coach), he can have a shot at scoring 50+. 60 points will depend on a lot of factors...like how good our PP can play etc.
