The guy should be good for 30+ goals.

Guy gets way to underrated, what is even worse is that some ppl actually think he is overpaid.

In his first year, he scored 29 goals in 61 regular season games, and added 9 goals in 19 playoff games. Ppl remember Cammy as a playoff hero with his 13 goals, but seem to forget how great Gionta was that on that run.

Year 1: 37 goals in 80 games

Year 2, another great season, 29 goals in all 82 games, and added 3 goals in 7 playoff games.

Year 2: 32 goals in 89 games

Last year, he got two freak injuries at only scored 8 goals in 31 games.

If you add up all the games, Gionta has played 200 games as a Hab and scored 77 goals during that time, on a 82 game season projection that would be around 31 goals a year.

And he is only 33 and should be able to score around that pace for the next 2 years on his contract, plus he is good defensively and great in shootout. Also very underrated passer, low assist total as Hab because most of the time was spent playing with Gomez.
