The OP is a Sens fan genius.

As for the original question, I think this fits into the "Can Pacioretty reach 40 goals" topic. I see him as a solid 30ish goal guy long term. One or two 40 goal seasons are possible, but it would have to be a perfect storm of situations. He's got a tantalizing combination of size, speed and skill with a strong shot which should mean that this isn't a fluke season. That being said, he doesn't really have that elite talent in an aspect of his game that you really look for in top scorers. He's looking like a top-line scorer and a primary scoring threat, but not someone that you should be exclusively building your offense around.
