Who? This guy?

In reality, things aren't on fire.  Fire is on things.

72 points in an unfinished season? I call bulls***.

He played on a line with Landon Ferraro last year in Red Deer and looked good to the Red Wings, so they singed him to an off-season contract. He's one of those guys Holland refers to as "bonus picks", kind of like Brian Lashoff (Kingston, OHL). He had a decent season last year with 42 points in 72 games. When Landon went down with an injury early in the season (knee, I think, but someone can correct me here) it was assumed that Willie's numbers would drop, but as you can see.... 72 points over 57 games at the moment.

“You tell me how often it happens when a guy put up two points, has a good game, and next thing you know he sits for 10 games,” Kindl said. “But that’s in the past and I don’t want have that in my mind. I’m just excited for this new camp."

“I always tried to have confidence when I wasn’t playing. It wasn’t easy for me. You may think you played a good game and you sit down for the next 10 (games) and keep going back and forth, but all that is in the past and I’m just looking forward to a new challenge.”

No bulls*** at all. He's got great potential, especially for someone who went undrafted. Going to be interesting to see if they move him up to the AHL next year.

He plays in the WHL, 72 points is very possible.

And Jesusberg is correct.

72 in the WHL is like 42 in the AHL which is like 1 point seasons in the NHL. Yes?

Awesome. Seeing prospects do well and earn extensions is always good.
