He's probably where he should be.
Last year he put similar numbers on an incredibly strong team, so people could take a look at him when he was 17 and under different circumstances. In all honesty, he looks like a really strong player, but he's rightfully slotted behind the clear top 3 guys, then the next top 2~3 guys.

Definitely has all the tools to be a high-end center in the league; however, players like MacKinnon, Drouin, Jones, Barkov are probably going to be more 'Elite'. In that same ways (and I hate making this comparison) Toews is top 20 in points this year, probably has one of the top 2 or 3 +/-'s in the league; yet still people like to talk more about Stamkos, Ovechkin, Giroux; even though they're on poor to average teams at best this year... and the other guy's leading the best team in the NHL as the C and the heart and soul.

That's what I feel Monahan will bring to the table.
