Hes got 37pts in 47 games on pace for about a 60+ season in his first full season in the NHL. The one thing that gets me is hes been consistent putting up points this season, and a lot on 5 on 5. You don't need to be fast if you can think two plays ahead.
That guy has a lot of talent and some people cant just accept it. He crushed the Q when he played and even outclassed lecavalier by a mile. He's not that bad on his own end as people think he is. With his great hands and vision hes alway able to get out of trouble in the defensive zone. BTW he's not that small at 6'0 177 nd he can only get bigger and faster. For the people who still doesnt believe in him, hi 37 points in 45 gmes are better than Spezza in a strong Ottawa team and way better than Lecavalier who plays with better linemates.
