These predictions of 80 points or 40 goals are way out of whack. 20-30 goals, 50-60 points. That would make him a legitimate 1st liner.
This is why I keep saying Boyle should not be his center. I'm not trying to knock Boyle, he's a solid team player, but when it comes to his offensive game, he has none. How many times did people rip him in the GDT last year because on a 3 on 2 rush he'd just fire a poor shot from far out? He lacks offensive instincts.
