Fact is, we don't know Tlusty's performance next year. But the best indication is what he has done recently, due to him developing as a player and do to his future role on the team (as a first line player) matching with where he played a full season last year only. Canes fans aren't saying Tlusty will score 40 goals. We FULLY EXPECT for him to not continue an unsustainably high shooting percentage. However, he looks to be at least a 20 G scorer, with 30 G potential. Tons of great players take until their mid-to-late 20s to develop. I don't know why Tlusty can't possibly be one of these very many players.
Derick Brassard has proven himself as a top-6, 40 point player in COLUMBUS of all places, with AND without Rick Nash.

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT scenario from Tlusty.

Poor comparison to use.
