If he scores 48 goals per 82 games and plays 70 actual games, then it comes out to 41 goals. I think expecting this is more than reasonable.

70 may be a little high, but yes that is proper reasoning. You have to look at empirical data, then throw in a dose of your own opinion/prediction.

But just remember this is a "season forecast", not an "82 game forecast". So which piece of data is more relevant? There's got to be a better metric for a player who rarely plays 82 games...
