Hall has higher potential than 65 points like one poster said. He has above a ppg this year and amost had last year. Again there is a reason he went 1st overall.

I say Gally will be like Kopitar or a bit better. Kopitar has 473 points in 518 career games. For the past 5 seasons he has been at just under a point per game. He is a 2 time 30 goal scorer. I think that is a good comparison. I do think he can have a few 80+ maybe 90+ in a career year. But not 100 like Tavares can.
If he can have 90+ like you say in a career year why not 100? Is it really that far fetched?

Personally I don't know why are putting a cap on Galchenyuk's offensive ceiling, he was 2ppg in the OHL after missing the whole year and now is .5ppg in the NHL in the same development year... kid should be dynamite offensively with good defense.
