I can't really say..

if there's a really good percentage that he would score four more, and I don't think you can say. Who'd have thought he'd score 2 in 25? Perhaps in the last 10 games he scored 6 goals; what are the chances that in the next 10 he'd score 6, perhaps 1 or 2 would be more like it and that still would be 7 ot 8 in 20 (on pace for 28-32).

Like I've said...there is no stat for what would have been had someone played all 82 games. When someone say a player has a 20 goal season...he has scored 20 goals, whether it's 20 games, 30 games, 82 games, or more. There's no he would have scored...

Oh...and I believe I've been wrong with York's stats once. When checking it the first time, I didn't add up the 18 and 2, since he was traded it was on two different lines. Sorry, I was off by two goals (which cannot be further extrapolated since he did play in 81 games that season - it comes to 20.25 goals, rounded down to 20).
