Actually, yes, Hartnell has shown the ability to score 30 goals a season. Whether he will or not remains to be seen. It's not his hands that held him back, it's his skates. Your little 28 goals in 3 season fact is quite humorous. Legwand, who's considered a legitimate goal scorer, had only 37 goals through 215 games. And Legwand had the advantage of having his first 3 seasons be at the age of 19-21 instead of 18-20. Don't be a fool and underestimate how hard it is for an 18/19 year old to play in this league. Also, the Pred are a very low scoring team. That must be factored in as well. Nothings worse than the kid who clings to one fact, no matter how irrelevant.
And why does a powerforward have to score 30-40 to be considered PF? Wouldn't that be consired an All-Star PF instead of just a PF? Powerforward is a type of game someone plays. Someone who is really physical and can still score yet plays forward. He doesn't have to lead the league in scoring to be a PF.
