Kristian Huselius: 63 points (23 goals, 40 assists) scored. Frequently does higher than that as well.
Also of note but outside your 60 point range: RJ Umberger (23 goals and 32 assists for 55 points) and Jakub Voracek (16 goals and 34 assists for 50 points).

I think it's a legitimate question. Having a 60-70point player isn't going to guarantee us anything, but teams that advance in the playoffs typically have players who can put up points (among other things). If you look at the teams in the West who made it past the 1st rd, SJ had 3 players score over 82points, Vancover had 4 players score over 67p, Chicaco had 4 players score over 66p, and Detroit had 2 at 70p.

Scoring plays a big part in hockey. Deep, I know.
