I am sure many teams will love having the 50 point, perennial Selke candidate guy down the middle for them. You win Stanley Cups with players like Ryan O'Reilly.
I think it's safe to say that there are plenty of fans here who believe that 50 points, if given the ice time of a Top-2 Center, will be his minimum.

Hell, I believe that he's only truly scratched the surface of what he can accomplish offensively, and his defensive game has only gotten better as well.
