I'd accept he could make a push for 4th. I still think it's going to be incredibly difficult for him to actually break top 5 but I can see it happening.

And offensively he may be as talented as Huberdeau (or more so) at the same age, but does that put him above some players that are better all around with slightly less of an offensive game? I'm mean Lindholm is better than Backstrom in the SEL at the same age and he has that better all around game.
