Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Post-lockout = Thornton era + better offensive numbers league-wide (at least at first).
Scoring in the range of 75-85 points is still nothing to sneeze at, I realize that. This Sharks fan has no gripes about those stats (everything else though is a different story...see Roenick).
But I was wondering if Edmonton would be happy with a 75-85 peak for 5 years (following around 7 years of 45-55pts) or if he has a chance to put up HOF-level numbers. Basically, what's expected of Hall given his potential? Marleau can play wing or center and will probably get to 1000 pts but he's no HOFer.
As a forward, is he more Iginla/Hossa or Doan/Marleau? The answer to that question will help me better answer the OP's question.
