Throwing out words like elite and breakout to describe ROR's past season is just a little premature without looking a little deeper.

In 2011-12 he scored 13 goals and has 13 assists playing 74 games primarily as the third line center.

In 2012-13 he scored 18 goals and 37 assists playing 81 games primarily on the first line, with top PP minutes.

5 more goals and 24 more assists, however he also had 400 more minutes on the ice including 145 more on the PP. There is also no question he played with more offensively skilled linemates.

So to claim all the increase in production is ROR's growth as a player is not necessarily factual.

I am not suggesting ROR isn't a good young player with potential, just suggesting some of the claims be tempered a little.
