You haven't seen Bobby Ryan play and I know this for two reasons. If you've seen Ryan play you'd know:
1) He doesn't play with Getzlaf and Perry that much, rather he spends a lot of time bouncing between lines one and two. He actually spent quite a large amount of time on the second line last year.
2) Bobby Ryan doesn't play on the first power play unit in Anaheim. That's reserved for some scrub named Teemu Selanne. He'd be playing on the first power play here.
45 goals isn't out of the question at his peak.
Yeah, but you're talking about potential. He could also have a 15-20 goal season playing john tortorella style hockey and suddenly facing every team's top d pairing.
I think it's smarter and appropriate to project that he'll continue to score at his current pace or even slightly below. That's no knock on him either.
