Again, I am not saying he is going to flop, I just want to see if he can repeat them (or at least put up comparable numbers)



And that's fine. We'll see what happens next year. You are probably right. I'm just curious to see what he can do in a full year now. Good rookie season. Bad sophomore season. Great third season. We'll see how #4 goes.
I too am skeptical that he's got the experience and endurance to have Lundqvist-type consistency at this stage of his young career, but with his drive and work ethic I wouldn't be surprised in the least and I think it it's even unwise to assume he won't have a good season next year as well. Dudeman isn't a slacker.
