That's insane...

I mean I thought his upside was all 60 point-ish..but I mean if the kid is already doing a point per game clip over even a dozen games in his rookie season playing with not the greatest talent...then look out
It is dangerous to judge a player simply over a small stretch. Ask the legion of Oilers fan who now look dumb because of totally ridiculous expectations they had on Hemsky. All because Ales finished last season with a point per game over a small stretch.

Ruutu still looks to me like a key player who will rack 60-something points per year in his prime.
