Progress isn't only about your age, it's about NHL experience, training, etc, which Read hadn't have before. I see him improving. Wellwood played 24 games, and he should be a NHL regular next year, how would he only score 5 goals? He'll get more than that. Harry Z may not even play with the big club this year.

That said, players don't score their goals alone, you have to consider the loss of Jagr and Carle as more than the loss of X goals. The system is also a factor, but I think it will still be very offensive.
Wellwood might get 8 if Harry Z/another filler does not get 3 (Sestito, Rinaldo, Holmstrom).
