It requires great vision, anticipation and good puck movement. He could very well prove to be excellent there, as his hockey IQ is great everywhere else, but thus far in his career, he has not shown that yet on any level so it's premature to expect that. If he gets PP time and sucks, he could very well reach 40 just based off random points. Girardi isn't an ace there and he had 10 PPP in 11-12.
Agreed. I'm looking forward to AV giving McD some PP time. But I don't think that Petro is as far away from McD as Doughty is. That's really all I was trying to say.
