I would argue he was only in the discussion last year because he led in points by so much.

Anyway my question is, if he did end up leading NHL dmen in points while keeping up his solid defensive play, could he be in the discussion even as a rookie?

I get the feeling he wouldn't as a lot of people would call fluke and point to abstract stats ala unsustainable Eberle. But, our power play is projecting to be right there at the top and he's a main fixture. Top in points does not seem as far fetched as most would have thought 7 months ago.
I think we should be more than happy if he wins the Calder. In saying that, there is no doubt he'll score some votes for the Norris.
