How Many 10 and 20 Goal Scorers This Season?!?

Recommended Posts

25+

Henrik

Daniel

20-25

Higgins

Hansen

15-20

Burrows

Kesler

10-15

Booth

Kassian

5-10

Bieksa

Garrison

Edler

0-5

Hamhuis

Sestito

Weise

Schroeder

Henrik and Daniel will lead the charge, and one or both may even reach 30+ goals. Hansen and Higgins are going to be effective contributors. Kesler and Burrows will have relatively dry years compared to what is expected from them. Booth will not amount to much. Kassian will have a slow year, and may show flashes of brilliance, but it will be far below the unrealistically lofty expectations the Canucks have for him. Bieksa, Garrison and Edler will have a solid year defensively and will make some contribution to the offence. Same with Hamhuis, although he will not score a lot.

Sestito, Weise, Schroeder are wild cards, and either one may have a really good year, but don't count on it.

This will initially be a very dry year scoring-wise. Fully expect Torts to be on MG's case for some additional scoring talent through trades by mid-season.

20+ goal scorers: Higgins. Hansen, Booth, Kassian

I want some of what you're smoking!

LOL @ Hank with 30+. In 12 NHL seasons he's only scored 20+ twice he's usually in the 15-20 range.

LOL@ all those rookies making the team and scoring 10+

This is assuming all 82 games are played by each player, which is unlikely:

D. Sedin: 22 - 34

H. Sedin: 10 - 21

A. Burrows: 17 - 26

R. Kesler: 19 - 33

C. Higgins: 10 - 17

J. Hansen: 11 - 25

D. Booth: 8 - 17

Z. Kassian: 13 - 20

J. Schroeder: 7 - 19

B. Gaunce: 4 - 11

H. Shinkaruk: 3 - 8

B. Horvat: 6 - 9

B. Richardson: 8 - 12

D. Weise: 2 - 9

T. Sestito: 1 - 4

D. Hamhuis: 4 - 9

A. Edler: 4 - 15

K. Bieksa: 6 - 11

C. Tanev: 3 - 7 (if he remains a Canuck)

J. Garrison: 8 - 19

F. Corrado: 2 - 4

Y. Weber: 0 - 2

Again, I don't think many of these players will play 82 games, and some may not play a single game this year like Horvat and Shinkaruk, but I put what I thought they'd get playing a full season with their current experience.

Man some people sure have high expectations of Hank, getting 25+ goals and all that. I'd say he'll get more like 15-20.

Richardson too, I'm expecting defensive play from him, not much offensively. I'm expecting about 6-8 goals. 10 max.

So, would that be a career year yer calling for or are you expect Hansen to keep putting up points like never before?

I fully expect him to keep producing like he did last season, if not a bit better. He uses his speed and tenacity on the forecheck to create chances, has a good shot, and should get PP time. 50 points and 20 goals are really not that big of a stretch for Hansen.

With a new Tortorella defensive system in place? Gotcha.

Are your opinions pulled out of thin air as quickly as I read your one-line jabs? You have no idea what Torts will do.

Quote... 'Sather said the Rangers' reliance on defense first led to players being worn down by the time the postseason started.

"I think we needed a change in style," he said. "If you look at the injuries that we had over the years, and the number of guys that really got [beat up] in our end, [it was] because we constantly had to defend our end. It's a lot easier to move the puck out quick then go back and slow down and bring the puck out. That style was perfect here for a couple years, but I think it started to wear our team out. There's nothing wrong with that style. But with the injuries that we had this year, it started to take a toll on our hockey club and it was time to change that style a little bit so we could go farther and compete longer." ...end quote.

Well, if ya don't wanna believe me (and others here) how 'bout an NHL general manager? Kinda hard for a zebra to change stripes esp overnight.

Sather makes MG look like a fracking genius, so I don't put much stock in what he has to say. Torts played a defensive style with NYR because he had 7 NHL capable forwards, 6 good defensemen, and a great goalie thanks to Sather.

Funny how you can just ignore a GM with 30+ years exp. It's one thing to question one move here and there but to ignore a body of work is just childish. He's forgotten more than you or I will ever know.

GPG - 2.73 (last season was 2.65)

Probably the most accurate one yet, although I do not think that Richardsson will get 11 goals. 5-9 seems more accurate to me. Also, on a separate note, I don't get why Booth is being put in 10-19. I mean, I get it. He's coming off an injury and his last season. But I do think he will be the 25 goal scorer he once was. This season, I'd predict 20-23 goals for Booth.
