I'm not knocking anybody and I think this team will be better offensively then last season, but I remember people thinking that Gaborik, Drury, Dubinsky, Callahan, Higgins, and Kotalik would score over 20 goals last year. But clearly:

Frolov >> Higgins/Kotalik

I think Frolov is going to have a solid year. He will get tons of ice time (Both even strength and on the PP) and will be playing with Gaborik, more then likely. Here are my predictions:

Gaborik: 43
Frolov: 31
Prospal: 12
Dubinsky: 21
Callahan: 18
Christiansen: 12
Anisimov: 16
Drury: 15
Avery: 10
MZA: 10
Boyle: 4
Prust: 5
Boogard: 1 (Hey he's gotta score sometime, right? lol)
MDZ: 10
Roszival: 7
Girardi: 5
Staal: 8
McD: 3
Eminger: 1
Gilroy: 4

Total: 236
This is more realistic than the OPs list.

I'll eat my shoe if this team even scores more than 260. There's a reason 4 of the top teams in the league were the only ones to do it last season.
