Not saying I'm clamouring for Poni, but he is at the high end of what we can expect, and its almost impossible to get a guy like him for next season in terms of the cap.
If you want a shooter who scores more goals than Poni, then he will be expensive, because Poni is now legitimately a big bodied 50-60 points player who gets 20+ goals a season and plays good D and provides net presence.

He is pretty much what Malone was when on Malkin's wing, same size almost to the pound, and if that package isn't something we need over a guy like Dupuis on the top6, then I don't know...
