On the other hand, the main reason why Kovalchuk didn't score +40 goals last season seems obvious to me. His one-timer lost in accuracy compared to Atlanta.With 310 shots on net last season, IK was an offensive force.
Usually +300 shots on net mean easy 40 goal seasons for those elite shooters, but like I pointed out above, his S% regressed.

Once he'll make adjustment to his one-timer, I'm sure he'll hit the 40 goals/season mark again.
I think that is switching wings more than anything, I expect that number to come back up.
