Probably around 50. If he got 55, I would consider it a very successful season. I think it's reasonable to think he can get about 25 goals and 25 assists, give or take a couple. He will be playing with Steen and McDonald, and the 3 of them all play a style that fits perfectly with each other.
I think he has the potential to have a bigger rookie season like Bobby Ryan had, but it probably isn't likely. In future seasons, I expect him to have production on par with Ryan.
We may have a defensive oriented system, but when we have McDonald and Perron healthy and in the lineup, we produce like a top 10 offensive team, so it's not like Tarasenko will be hindered by our system.
