Then what are your expectations of him? 90 point player at 22? He's 2nd round pick, not Crosby. If he topped out at 65 points, but was consistently near that number, I'd be thrilled. Let his game develop.

As for his playoff performance, I think you all are making this into a bigger deal than it is. Look at Datsyuk, for example. He didn't do much during his first few playoff appearances either, but got his **** straight and has been a solid playoff performer since. No need to panic over nothing.
