What does the future hold for Marc Savard?

I think this season he has shown he can score by himself just fine, but how do you think he'll be in future seasons playing next to Heatley and/or Kovalchuk? Would I be mistaken to think 80+ points a year (barring injuries) is a realistic prediction for Savard? What do you think, more/less? Thanks in advance..

80+ Points ???
I hope it, cause he is my 2nd Line C on my fantasy team.

You don't think 80 points is a realistic projection? He got what, 55 in 45 games or something this year, WITHOUT Heatley on his wing??

52, actually -- 19G, 33A. The question mark hanging over Savvy's head won't be "can he score?" because clearly he can; it's going to be "will he ever play anything close to a full season?" Conditioning isn't going to be the problem, because Hartley is famous for his extremely high standards. The facts that Savvy is small (he's listed at 5' 10", but 5' 8" is more accurate) and plays pretty aggressively have left him susceptible to the kind of freak injuries that ended his season this year.

Savard's scoring talent has never really been in question, just take a look at his OHL statistics. Given his skill set and even when factoring in his size he is an 80 point a year player when playing with solid first line players and given 20+ minutes of ice time. The question is can his body hold up throughout the season.
