I did a search for forwards who scored at least 30 goals at 33 years old, post-lockout. Here are their goals scored the following season, with the difference between seasons in brackets:

Blake 15 (-25)
Iginla 32 (-11)
Jagr 30 (-24)
Knuble 24 (-10)
St Louis 29 (-1)
Rolston 31 (0)
Alfredsson 29 (-14)
Briere 16 (-18)
Samuelsson 18 (-12)

Recent history tells us that Cole will likely slow down this season, if there is one.
