<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DeadWingsv2</b></div><div>That was at 20 and 21 respectively. He also didn't center Panarin the whole season that year. I see a player that is stronger, more mature and put up 10pts in 10 playoff games last year. I'm not even a CBJ fan, so I don't have a dog in this fight, but when a 22 year old, 6'3", 218lb center, who can skate well and just came of a point per game playoff, hits the trade market, the cost inflates. I'm not even saying it's going to be worth whatever someone has to give up to get him, only time will tell, I'm just stating that the going rate is going to be STEEP.</div></div>
10 games sample size is what you're hanging his value on? What happens if he only scores 2 more points in the next 6 games, for 3 points in these first 10 games? Are we going to ignore that sample size because it doesn't fit the narrative and it's too small?
I was a huge fan of Dubois at the draft, and I think he can be a really good player. He's never going to reach the level of MacKinnon, Matthews, Eichel, and I'm not even sure he'll hit Barkov/Scheifele territory. He's being overrated because he's young, was drafted high, and is big. Once you look at what he's actually done, it's clear he's not the player some think he is.
