If you watch video of all his goals this season. You can certainly see a difference in his first 10 goals then in his last 10. Especially his first 4. He has the skills to be a 30+ scorer. Just inconsistent this year with getting open in the slot and getting the handle on the puck in his wheelhouse.
Like I said... I don't think he has proven that he has the skills to be a consistent 30+ goal scorer. Does he have the skills to score 30 goals? Yes. He has already and he is a skilled player. But a consistent 30+ goal scorer is another type of player, and while Seto may become that player, I am not as confident as others that he is definitely going to be that player.

To bring it back to the topic at hand... Yes, Seto is skilled. No, I don't think he's ready to replace Marleau "no problem," and I'm not sure yet whether he will ever be.

For those thinking 30+ goals, consistently, is easy, I give you:
