Improbable, but not impossible.

Either way, that's not even the point. He could regress to 14%, increase his shot totals, and still out up 30 goals whenever the NHL plays a full season.

No one is ever going to claim he's as good as Stamkos, but even if he does come back down to earth a bit comparing him to Kane as far as value to a team isn't all that ridiculous IMO.
