So I do not think it is as silly a slam dunk as you make it out to be above. The guys listed above are pretty highly touted prospects in their own right.
One underestimates the serendipity that playing TOGETHER produces. That these 4 players are playing Together on one unit is what makes them overwhelming favorites to lead the league in pts production. I'd expect nothing else really. What other unit in the AHL even comes close to this?

What PP in the AHL, on paper comes close to this. Or is even in the same conversation. maybe you've noted how ineffective these players have been in this same AHL when they are not playing together.
