    Imho I think he has what it takes, but it's still too soon to predict something like that

    Art Ross will be between McDavid and MacKinnon. Rocket will be Ovi's to lose with an outside chance to Matthews and Pasta. He's damn good though, somehow has taken another step from his already elite winger status.

    Love how people anoint players as Art Ross, Rocket Richard, MVP befoore the season is even 10 games in. By this logic Gretzky would only have 3 art ross trophies and Mario 2. Lol

    Anoint? You’re taking a big leap here. The thread title is asking if he will be a contender this year.

    Art Ross no but the Richard absolutely, proven 35 goal scorer that only just turned 22, he might not win it but he will be in the contention for sure.

    No reason he couldn't win the Rocket, I find the Art Ross more unlikely though. I guess the Ross is still possible but I think he's right up there in the top 5 Rocket contenders.

    Statistically speaking if he maintains his career average shooting percentage of around 14% and keeps shooting at the rate he is now he would hit 51 goals, obviously that's just a statistical projection based off his career averages though. Pasta has had 10+ game goal scoring droughts in his past 2 seasons but managed 35 goals anyway.

    Best combo guys are probably McDavid, MacKinnon, Matthews
    Ovi will probably still win the Richard though

    No one has mentioned that Bergeron is tied for first in points? Pretty good for a 33 year old multi Selke Trophy winner.

    I can’t even imagine being a Boston sports fan.

    Nothing but championships. None of the teams are bad. No hardship at all. Just success.

    They didn’t even have to tank and they got a top 10 player in the league in Pastrnak. My Leafs are horrendous for 10 years and we’re still somehow worse.

    There is a possibility if the entire line stays healthy.

    This may be their prime year.

    Trust me it wasnt always this way. I date back to going to Original 6 games. It took decades for this golden era to come about.
    My kids however are spoiled rotten. Not knowing any difference.
    I tell them to take it all in. Every parade. Every team. Because eventually it will be over.

    Well said! I remember some of the bad Boston teams from my younger days, specifically the pre Bledsoe pats.

    I’d be happy if one Toronto team in the sports I watch one a single championship at this time. I find myself being greatful that the Leafs are even competitive, even if they aren’t quite top contenders.

    pretty much every top goal scorers shoots high teens in shooting percent, everyone on top of scoring is pretty high above that. kane is the only guy up there who is the teens. it's way too early.
