Zhogy 35g 45a
Plekanec 25g 45a
Kosty 45g 40a
Lats 35g 40a
Ryder 40g 40a
Chip 20g 40a

If the Habs can manage anywhere close to 200 goals from its top two lines they'll be in fine shape in the future. 50 goals from the third unit, 30 from the fourth line, and 40 from the defence - 340 goals!!!!! You don't need a 50-goal scorer to have a potent offence.

I'm not saying that any of our young guys will reach those numbers, but they're plausible.
If Higgins goes from 23G and 15A to 35G 45A, does that mean Steen can score 27G and 81A?

Funny who all of the Habs prospects seem to be able to triple or quadruple their production, but habs fans come on the Leaf board and say the Leaf prospects don't have half the potential the the hab prospects do, yet the Leaf prospects outperform the hab prospects by a considerable margin and at a younger age.
