I couldn't say if that was more to do with benefiting from the system in Springfield, or being stifled by the system in Adirondack. The Flyers/Phantoms could have had him focus on other areas of his game. That tends to happen a lot with guys once they turn pro. They come in with a hot hand, then get steered away to focus on other aspects of the game.

I think I might have to correct myself, though. Looking back, I think he actually scored the 42 goals when he was 19 before turning pro at 20.
