We can not just depend on 1 or 2 people for offense.
I expect his line to be out there against the other teams top line. There is no way he will put up top scoring numbers against the other teams top line. If he can (which I think he will) shut those lines down though then that will help out the team more than him scoring more goals against weaker competition. That is a huge role for any player.

Giroux/Hartnell/Read/Voracek/Simmonds/Briere can all score a lot of goals. Plus, Lavy's system is offensively friendly during the regular season.
