I understand where you are coming from. But Derek is now top 11 of all centers in points. He's in the top 30 of all forwards in points. Even if he slips a bit he's still a 1C. This year he is not only a 1C but he is an Elite 1C. Now, I don't know if he will stay at that pace next year. But for right now he is.

Not to mention, he's a +22. He plays the PK and is often one of our best defensive players. His vision and hockey IQ is elite.

I'm not sure he's going to continue at this pace, but even if he doesn't he's still a 1C.
