You can never easily replace 44 goals and over a point per game. But this is going to turn into a semantic debate where I don't think losing that production is a small deal and you think it is easily overcome.

Similar response to both of your Setoguchi points. One season of high goalscoring with Joe, followed by a season of mediocre and inconsistent goalscoring, doesn't prove to me that Setoguchi can replace Marleau's production or consistently score 30 goals over a season.

Hell, Cheechoo had better production on an arguably less talented 3rd line.

Guys seto's age who are scoring 30 goals consistently? Patrick Kane had his first 30-goal season this year. Out of three. But people know/think he'll keep that pace up. Setoguchi is no Kane. Just one example.
