He has put up 42 and 47 points the last two seasons. In terms of points per game, he will in all likelihood surpass both seasons this year. Considering the abysmal teams he's played on, I don't think those are bad numbers. Do you?

If he puts up good numbers this season, we'll be having this same conversation next year. You'll be saying "oh, last year was only 48 games. I want to see what he does in a full 82 game season before feeling comfortable with him on the second line".

If it's premature to praise him after 11 games this year, then surely it's also premature to **** on other players who haven't been playing to their potential. But that hasn't stopped posters here from doing so. So which is it? Are 11 games enough to make judgements or not?
