Wings lack a true sniper who can finish quickly and Cammalleri is one of the best in putting the puck in the net. Outside of Franzen who is currently their best scoring winger, they dont have a sniper.
He scored 41 points last season. He scored 47 points the season before that. He scored 50 points the season before that. That is an average of 46 points per season over the last 3 years.

So, yeah... he produces around 40 points, with the trend going steadily downwards.

Claiming he'll score 40 goals is laughable. He wouldn't come anywhere close to scoring 40 goals, regardless of who his center was. Franzen, who is currently a better point producer than Cammelleri, has never gotten 40 goals on Datsyuk's wing.

The only recent players who have gotten 40 goals playing with Datsyuk are Hossa and Zetterberg, and Cammalleri isn't even close to being in the same realm as either of them.
