35 in 55 is 52 in 82. That's fringe 1st line and not close to 66.

It was a huge up year for him on ES. He was the biggest beneficiary of the rampage the Wings top six went on there last season. The previous 3 years he's been pretty much your average to below average 2nd line guy in scoring there. Andrei Kostitsyn is comparable to his other years.

I'd highly doubt he's fundamentally changed as a player at 28. More likely he just had a year everything broke his way.

Expecting him to repeat last season, especially without Datsyuk or Zetterberg is highly dubious. Regular 50 point guy is the highest I'd consider him.
