I guess my point is don't set your expectations too high, otherwise you'll be disappointed...

At this point its even laughable to even mention Chara in the same sentence.
The same reason that Chara didn't have a 20 point season before he was around 25 years old. Tall guys take longer to fill out their frames and until they do they tend to lack the coordination and strength necessary to really make the most out of their size, including developing a strong slapshot.

But you can just see that the offensive flair and the hockey sense is there with Tinordi. That's why I think he'll eventually be a ~25pts player.
