He's ready for a breakout season. Honestly if I could tab someone for a preseason "most improved award", it'd be him. As much flack as JR gets, he really did fleece Toronto in that one. And yes, that is somewhat high expectations, but he's still fairly young and can at the least provide steady defense on the PK.

Also, as enamored as everyone was with Brandon Sutter, career PPG:

Sutter: .374
Tlusty: .324

5 more points a season for Sutter over an 82 game season. But Tlusty is trending up while Sutter has been trending down a bit (offensively) since his sophomore season.

Tlusty was a first round pick for a reason. I think he's finally putting it together.
