Hejduk is also another x-factor. Has he lost a step? Yes. But count me in as one of the people who believe he's got a lot more to offer than what he gave us last season.

The Avs bring a lot of question marks, but on paper, those lines should bring us goals and worry opponents every night.
Well Hejduk definitely has the potential to score 20 again. Let's see a hypothetical total

McGinn (20) - Stastny (20) - Jones (25)
Landeskog (25) - O'Reilly (20) - Downie (20)
Paranteau (20?) - Duchene (30 Hopefully) - Hejduk (20?)
Kobasew (7) - Mitchell (5) - Olver (10)

That gives us a total of 222 goals from our forwards.

Using the same goal totals from the backend last year we have an overall total of 248. That's 40 more then last year. That would also have placed us 4th in GF last year.

4th in GF does seem unrealistic but I feel as though I have been somewhat conservative with my goal totals. No reason why we can't finish in the top 10 for GF next season.
