Frolov 32
Kopitar 31
Williams 28
Smyth 26
Brown 24
Stoll 18
Purcell 10
Handzus 16
Simmonds 12
Richardson 5
Lewis 4
Ivanans 2
Clune 1
Harrold 5
Doughty 12
Johnson 15
Hickey 5
Scuderi 1
Greene 2
Drewiske 1
O'Donnell 0
Total GF: 250

FYI, Atlanta went from having scored 207 goals for in 2007-2008 to scoring 250 goals for in 2008-2009. Also note that they had Hossa and Recchi in 07-08, losing their combined 38 goals scored.

I believe that it is within the realm of possibility for the Kings to show similar marked improvement in goal scoring, especially if you take into account the progression of some of their players.
Give me a hundred on Brown to score over 24 goals. Also, give me fifty on Purcell over 10 goals. Give me two hundred on Johnson under 15 goals although I am rooting for him to score 40!! I just think 15 seems too optimistic .
