Zetterberg had better numbers at 19 (0.8 ppg) but he was playing in the 2nd league.

I just picked players off the top of my head here, I am not trying to be a smart*** but I really want to know which are these guys putting up numbers way better than PRV did in the SEL.
You can look it in another way! He had a season as 17 behind him(can do your investigation a bit wider) and his body was grown for the mens leuage early and because of his speed. His hasnt developed so much as others who wasnt full grown yet early. He isnt clutch and he has always needed alot of chances for every goal he got.

Sam gagner syndrome, you doesnt have to be stellar material because you play against men very young. Other prospect with a slower steady development passing you in a couple of years coming fresh from juniors.
