IMHO if healthy MM could be good for 35+/- goals.
Having Faksa, Rieder and MM in the line-up is a real good start then if Crescenzi comes back he should be good for an additional 10 goals above his 24 from last season.
But players like Pederson, Ming and Lorentz need to vastly improve.
Not sure if a Lesway or a Francisco has a future with this team going forward and basically have zero trade value.
But most of the success of this team will depend on either Murphy and Gibson returning. If one returns then the
Rangers should be fine....if both, it will make it really interesting!!
I'm all done with the Francisco experiment, and I hope Spott is too. He just doesn't seem to give a damn out on the ice, and working hard 20 minutes of the entire season is not acceptable. The kid has skill, but skill alone isn't going to take him anywhere.
Lesway works his butt off, but doesn't have the skill level. I love the kid, but I can see better options for that roster spot. As a 4th line energy player, he's fine.
