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.
Why stop at 100? Why not 110? Why not 120? Why? Because he hasn't proved ****, yet. If you set these ridiculous expectations for him, you will end up disappointed. Putting up 80-90 points is basically being a top 5-10 player in today's NHL, can he do it? Sure but he still has a lot to prove before I start saying he will be better than kopitar, right now I'll be happy if he becomes a 70 point player.

Galchenyuk is on a point streak right now, a couple of weeks ago no one was mentioning him, and now he's a potential 100 point player? Temper your expectations and stop overrating him.

Kopitar is a good comparison though.
