Jaskin is skull****ing the Q in a way that neither Sonne or McRae ever did.
Sonne put up monster points as an overager
, but didn't have the physical gifts to dominate the way Jaskin does. McRae never had any season similiar to Jaskin's current one at any point period. Neither projected as a scoring line player at the NHL level with Sonne being a maybe 4th liner and McRae getting consideration only due to lack of center depth. So I'm not sure why you're trotting out these two schmucks as a cautionary tale for how Chris Stewart isn't expendable at some point.
The important thing here is that we now have a NA context for his game and data that consequently makes him easier to project as a NA pro. We'll see where it goes.
He was only 19 that season. Same age as Jaskin right now.
