Like with Nyquist I could say 55-70, sure he could score more but that would be his ultimate ceiling. Guys like Parise and Iginla didn't hit that number last year, it is hard to score 70 points in this league.
I agree 100%, people here have unrealistic expectations. if you're looking for maximum potential then yeah what I see looks about right. unfortunately most poster think the upper side of their favourite prospect is 80 to 100 points. Since the last lockout, the most 80 points player we've had in a single season is 28 which was right after the new CBA. We have had a steady decline since and last year we had 9. So, if you use that as a gauge, 80% of you are wrong.
