Carter worked well when he played with Gionta and Bernier. If given a decent amount of minutes our 4th line can get 25 goals.

We scored 149 5 v 5 Goals last year. That would equal 87 goals over a 48 game season.

Which I don't think will be hard to beat even losing all the forwards we did over the off-season.

Projected lines

Butler - Zajac - Kovy = (Butler 10 + Zajac 15 + Kovy 25) = 50 Goals
Elias - Henrique - Teddy = (Elias 15 + Henrique 15 + Teddy 10) = 40 Goals
Zubrus - Josefson - Clarkson = (Zubrus 10 + Josefson 5 + Clarkson 15) = 30 Goals
Carter - Gionta - Beriner = (Carter 5 + Gionta 5 + Bernier 5) = 15 Goals

Project Forward goals = 135 Goals over 82 games for 5v5

Our defense would need to get 14 goals to match last years projects which shouldn't be hard.

Fayne - Greene = (5)
Larsson - Tallinder = (5)
Zidlicky - Salvador - Volchenkov= (4)

I think people don't understand that if you put a NHL (Butler, Tedenby, some other guy) in Parise spot with his 5 on 5 minutes you can get 10 goals no problem. Which makes it a lot easier to make up the 11 other goals (Parise had 21 EV goals last year) between the 17 other skaters. Same can be said for Sykora. There is a reason why nobody is offering Sykora a multiyear contract even though he scored 17 EV goals last season (only 4 less goals that Parise). The people in the NHL view him as a replacement level player.
