HS is much more of a leader, much bigger, faster, has a better shot.
He's been compared to Duchene and a few others of that ilk by people who have followed him closely. I've only seen highlight videos online, so I'm only going by scouting reports from others, mind you.
I definitely share your skepticism about 80 points. But any sane person would with Roy too: Roy is an 80 pt player like Stafford is a 30 goal scorer. They're both not either of those, those were fluke years.
Anyway, I'm probably just trying to pump myself up about him because there are several scenarios where he could be the best forward available, not counting Nichushkin.
That's pretty unfair to the player Roy was in juniors. Nobody was questioning Roy's leadership abilities when he was captaining his team to the memorial cup.
If we end up with Hunter Shinkaruk, ugh.
