Prospal (18) - Christensen (12)/ White (14) - MZA (20)
Dubinsky (19) - Dreary (11) - Callahan (20)
Avery (9) - Anisimov (8) - Boogaard (0)
Boyle (2)

Staal (7) - Rozsival (3)
Del Zotto (9) - Girardi (4)
Gilroy (3) - Redden (1) *The overpriced garbage will never be waived by the most stubborn GM in the league
McDonaugh (1)

= 235 goals. Which is way too optimistic, even from me. Not all those 20 goal scorers will score 20 goals, so I'd say subtract at least 10 goals. 225 goals is closer to the truth.
I'm an extreme pessimist myself. Ask anyone I watch games with regularly (family and friends), and I'm so negative all game long and even if they have a 3-goal lead I'll say "they'll blow it".

But you think Anisimov is going to score 4 less goals?
Drury, Avery, Boyle, Staal, Girardi, Gilroy, Prospal are all scoring less goals this season, but MZA is scoring 20?

Hey, to each his own, but....
