    I see him making modest improvements each of the next few year, with the potential for 60 pts three years from now. Maybe something like high 40s next year, mid 50s the year after, and then maybe 60 after that. I'm not overly high on him.

    Overall consensus is he is a top end talent. I could see him being a 60 point guy in 3 years but next year, I'd probably say 40 to be safe. So hard to tell with teams like St.Louis. for me anyways.
    12 team lifetime pool. 18 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    Skaters:
    Dvorak, Fiala, Letang, Sikura, Lehkonen, Bratt, Ho Sang, Kaprizov, Haula, Jankowski, Jokiharju, Simmonds, Tanev, Donato, Hinostroza, S. Bennett, Beauvillier, Batherson.

    Goalies:
    Shestyorkin, Demko, Varlamov


    Taxi squad: Forsbacka-Karlsson, Liljegren, Samsanov


    - I'm no expert but I try really hard

    Guys like Thomas are somewhat hard to predict given their team situation. Obviously he's got a ton of talent, as evidenced by him being a key contributor as a 19 year old rookie for a SC-winning club. He put up 33 points (9-24) in 70 games, but only put 80 SOG over the course of the season. There are a lot of talented forwards in St. Louis, so he is going to have to work his way past some skilled guys for top-six and PP ice time.

    By the time he is in his prime (23-26) he's likely going to be a 65-70+ point scorer, but the question is just how long will it take to reach that level? I'm thinking 2-3 more seasons unless he can just downright bully his way on to the Blues' top line and PP earlier than expected. Thomas seems like one of those guys who is going to follow the classic development trend for fantasy forwards, and truly break out in his fourth season after a mini-breakout in his third. If I had to wager, I would say 20-21 he goes for 60 points, and then nearly pops 80 in 21-22.
