Yes. Marleau and Pavelski would both, in their own way, have matched it. Pavelski likely would have surpassed it because of how he plays.

And the only reason why is that those guys would have had a lot more opportunities with the puck or in better situations than what they had this year. Those guys, this year, always got the toughest matchups and on a line where they aren't the ones creating the plays. Put them in a spot where they get the puck to play their game more, they will get more chances to score and convert on more of them.
