Each season a combination of talent and everything going right is going to propel someone to that level or higher (Karlsson last year, Visnovski before that, Green and Keith the year before him) but they can't repeat it. Even hitting 50 is hard unless you have tremendous forward talent in front of you or you play like a 4th forward.
Yeah, the one defender who had no problem going over 50 points regularly before he started getting injured was Mike Green, and that's because he was more of a forward than a defenseman.
