I always get a chuckle when the stats crowd labels a statistical outlier "unsustainable" or "lucky" and refuse to admit the player could just possibly be better than average.

We've already heard it for Jones and Eberle. We'll hear it for Schultz and I have a feeling we'll be hearing it about Yakupov too.
Sure two 115 point pace is sustainable and translates into better than last season NHL success, for Eberle.

That's a huge difference than "just better than average" that no one is promoting here.

No doubt we will be hearing about all of the over hype on all these players though and some level of realism needs to be in play here to counteract balance some of the godly projections for these players.
