He got 59 in 74 games in Florida in the lowest scoring year in forever, playing with very little help. C'mon.
If this means he gets Al Arbour as a coach also, I have much doubt he about him scoring over 65. Bure would have had to compromise some of his offensive game for defensive responsibilty or else he wouldn't have played enough to get 65 goals.
