Filatov
WJC20: 20gp 13g 13a 26pts 1.30ppg
AHL: 90gp 32g 32a 64pts 0.71ppg
NHL: 53gp 6g 8a 14pts 0.26ppg

Zibanejad
WJC20: 6gp 4g 1a 5pts 0.83ppg
AHL: 24gp 4g 7a 11pts 0.46ppg
NHL: 18gp 1g 3a 4pts 0.22ppg
Your first comparison just made zero sense, that's why I posted that. Comparing an 18yo kid's numbers with zero experience in the league to a 21yo that had experience in the league already.

I never said Filatov didn't have any potential to be a player in this league, because he does. Difference between Zibanejad and Filatov is that it seems like Mika is willing to pay his dues and work in the AHL. Something Filatov has shown he doesn't want to do. So if he doesn't crack the top-6, he'll be leaving for the KHL yet again. Either way I don't care if he's here or not.

And it's way too early to be comparing Zibanejad's numbers to those of Filatov, anyway.
