why do we have to abstract level of play in a ridiculously small sample size for a "whats this players ceiling" scenario? from this post it looks like you're wondering if gus's development should be going like eric's, which is an entirely different question. when you ask about a player's full potential, you're projecting that player against another in which there is a consensus of their average level of play over a sizable amount of NHL experience. there is really no other way to explain it.
