    No because 10 games doesn't change the value of a player...

    I don't think Shaw can keep up this pace. Would be great if he proves me wrong.

    And anyways, we only have 5 top six forwards (including Kotkaniemi), so it's not like anyone's more deseving of the spot he's currently occupying.

    On pace for 60+ points if he stays on that line.

    Would be great to see a line with an 80-Point player, a 70-Point player and a 60-Point player on it. Haven't seen that in MON in I really don't know how many years!

    If he gets 60 points, I'm putting a tux on my girlfriends cat and taking him to a fine italian dinner.

    60 points would be phenomenal, but I'll be happy with even just 50. Last year he had 20 in 50, and he's only 4 points shy of that with 26 fewer GP.

    No chance he hits 60, hes not that skilled.
    Maybe 50 if he stays with Drouin and Domi for the rest of the season (which I doubt happens).

    Hey, guy is playing well. The concussion history is a thing though.

    He is playing well, and it seems the coaches have finally gotten through to him, and he is not taking a ton of bad penalties...he does have some nice hands around the net.

    He's underrated offensively. He isn't spectacular but like you said he's got a scoring touch around the net and he can complement fast, skilled playmakers well just by playing HIS game. He wants to leave his mark on games and the bad penalties he took were mostly when he was on the bottom 6. Right now I have no complaints and I fail to understand the criticism because he actually found chemistry and produces with regularity (for the time being.)

    40-45 pts season (he brings other intangibles) would be really good for Shaw. It took 3 years but we finally have good value of our trade for 2 2nd rounders.

    It’s a thing alright, a thing of the past......as long as he’s not trying to run everything over and keep his fighting majors to south of 3 1/2, he’s good to go

    6 game point streak, still on pace for over 50 points and over 20 goals

    Yeah, that would be a real good season for Shaw. I just worry about his concussion status. It seemed to take him a long time to return to form after that collision with Krug a couple years back.

    Let's be real. The amount of people who wrote Andrew Shaw off this year is a lot. Let's give credit where it's due during this stretch.

    I have even more respect for him when you read what he's been through physically/mentally over the last year or so.
