His numbers with Forsberg - 43 games - 34 goals
That translates to 63 if they both played a full season.

Without Forsberg 16 games - 6-3-9
That translates to 31 without Forsberg.

Now the 31 was playing being centered by either Handzus or Richards. Assuming he's playing with an average 1st line center and ot Forsberg I think you can split the difference between 31 and 63. Somewhere around 45.

Forsberg with Gagne
43 games - 16-45-61
Translates to 31-86-117

Forsberg without Gagne
9 games - 2-6-8
Translates to 18-55-73

As you can see they both are much better when playing together.

A quick check on knuble, who has played every game
69 games - 28-28-56, which translates to 33-33-66

Missing Just Gagne
9 games - 5-1-6, which translates to 46-9-54

Missing Just Forsberg
17 games - 6-6-12, which translates to 29-29-58

Missing Gagne and Forsberg
1 game - 0-1-1, which would be 0-0-82 (too small a sample)

All healthy
42 games 17-20-37, which would be 33-39-72

Not much a difference for Knuble, other that when gagne is out, Knuble's goal production goes up as he become the #1 target for Forsberg.

wow, thanks for spending the time to do that!
