34 goals and 37 assists in 71 games. That's 1.73 PPG, right on par with Strome (1.77) and Gally (1.85).

I understand the position of those who would've rather drafted Hamilton or Couturier, and I can also appreciate that Scheifele may or may not live up to expectations in the NHL. Can we finally put to rest this notion that he was some kind of insane reach that had no business being drafted at #7? His production speaks for itself.

I'm probably going to start another long and drawn-out Scheifele debate, but I don't really care. I'm just so damn impressed by the improvements he's made, and how he hasn't sulked in the slightest after being sent back. I cheer for all the Jets prospects, but Scheifele really holds a special place in my heart. Can't wait to see him turn into a beast in the NHL.
