I think the jump comes when the production of points is passed a certain expecation of number of minutes played. Thats why huge jumps come from 2nd and 3rd line players who do really well compared to first line players who kinda just play under a point a game. McGinn is an 84 for me after netting 50 points as a 3rd line/2nd line player). He started as a 77.

So the best would probably give them 3rd or 4th Line minutes (if its a forward) or bottom 6 minutes for a dman OR just keep them in the minors all together.
Kyle Quincy won the Norris and actually declined, right?

Production isn't a factor. C. Summers will jump even if he sits on the bench the entire year. I believe Nquist made his 6 point jump while putting up only modest numbers.

Its about age and potential rating.

(P.S., I really wish the system worked the way you explained. Perhaps you'd like to throw that in an EA suggestion box, because that's basically how it should work... )
