Looking at last seasons roster, I actually believe a lot of the players on the list are capable of producing more than they scored last season.

Player	        Pos	     GP	G
Anze Kopitar	C	82	34
Dustin Brown	LW	82	24
Ryan Smyth 	LW	67	22
Michal Handzus	C	81	20
Alexander Frolov	LW	81	19
Wayne Simmonds	RW	78	16
Jarret Stoll	        C	73	16
Drew Doughty	D	82	16
Scott Parse	        C	59	11
Brad Richardson	C	81	11
Justin Williams	RW	49	10
Jack Johnson	D	80	8
Randy Jones	D	48	5
Oscar Moller	C	34	4
Fredrik Modin	LW	20	3
Teddy Purcell	RW	41	3
Sean O'Donnell	D	78	3
Matt Greene	D	75	2
Corey Elkins 	LW	3	1
Davis Drewiske	D	42	1
Brandon Segal	RW	25	1
Peter Harrold	D	39	1
Brayden Schenn	C	1	0
Andrei Loktionov	C	1	0
Raitis Ivanans	LW	61	0
M.A. Cliche	        C	1	0
Jeff Halpern	        C	16	0
Rob Scuderi	        D	73	0
Rich Clune          LW	14	0
Trevor Lewis	C	5	0
Alec Martinez	D	4	0
TOTAL                                   231
I think among the forwards, Kopitar, Brown, Smyth, Williams, Simmonds, Stoll, Richardson, Ponikarovsky, and Parse are all capable of scoring more goals this coming season. Even if they each netted two goals more apiece, that would be 18 additional goals from the forwards.

Doughty and Johnson are also players who can increase their goal scoring totals. Say they both improve by four goals each, that is an additional 8 goals, for a 26 goal improvement.

Plus it is possible for goals to come from various others, albeit I am not expecting much production outside of the players I listed.
