First of all, even if he is able to maintain that pace, he still wouldnt break 50 goals. Second of all, that pace is completely unattainable over the course of an 82 game season.
JVR is a potential 35 goal scorer and I have no doubts that he will be there. But cut the 50 goal crap. He'll never be that good.
35 goals is still excellent production...
Youre right that 7 goals in 12GP isnt nearly a 50 goal pace for a season, but the Flyers only played 11 PO games. If he stayed healthy, and kept up a 7G in 11GP for the reg. season, thats definitely 50 goals. Lots of ifs, but theres a possibility he could do it.
