    Default Wheeler projections for next 2-3 years

    How much does Blake Wheeler regress for the next 2-3 seasons?
    Assuming he has hit his best totals thus far.

    91 points is likely not going to happen again. Years from now I think we will look back at last year and see that a lot of players had career years (Giroux, Wheeler, Karlsson, Mackinnon, Hall, Kopitar, Kessel, Voracek, Rantanen, Marchessault, Trocheck, etc.). That said, I think Wheeler will still score between 70-80 pts for the next two to three years.

    Don't know if he's got another 90 point year up his sleeve, but 75-80 points I'd say is an average I'd bank on. The slashing rule changes caused a spike in scoring this year, and the league will adjust accordingly - resulting in a steady decline in scoring across the board I'm sure. I don't expect a sharp dropoff but certainly I think he will put up numbers around or slightly above the range he had the previous three seasons.

    Interesting you have him at 65-70 in year 3, I don't think it's crazy or anything, but I'm a Wheeler fan boy, and I could see him still being a 75 pt thread in 3 years. Really hard to say though.
