I think the general statement "40 goal scorers are always available" is true but you should really be up front with your qualifying conditions instead of getting snarky with "try again" remarks.
On a not-so-related note, one could say, "how often do 70 goal scorers become available?" as a basis to sign Selanne.
I didn't think I had to put "currently capable of scoring 40 goals on a yearly basis, as well as putting up ~80+ points".
There are not many players like Gaborik ever available in UFA, and Schenn sure as hell would be lucky to ever become as good he currently is.
