No offense to Brodeur who has had a fabulous career, but I don't think people are going to be too concerned about the impact he is going to have on teams goal totals next year.

The Pens had 273 goals last year with Sid missing the majority of the season, Tanger missing a good chunk of games, Staal missing 20 odd games, even Malkin missed 5 or 6. You'd expect that those guys, if they had been playing the whole season, would have seen the Pens scoring even more goals.

and of course, it's not like Sid and Geno can't score points at the same time, or Sid and Staal, or Staal and Malkin, or all three of them together.
