I do not think Vora will regress to the mean too much tbh... I know that stats are precarious things but he has the worst PDO on the team, indicating he is unlucky! Though Bryz has skewed that... but even if you adjust the save percentage to .902 when he is on the ice (from .850~) it indicates he will not drop too much.

I imagine if he is uninjured next year his shot % will drop to about 14%, say 3%, so 200 shots over a year~ means about 6 less goals, so probably ~30 goals next year and 40 assists for 70 points at worst, if our team is better next year I see him in the 75-PPG range.
