Because of the way Pacioretty plays, I don't necessarily think he would decline as fast as at 28 years old... he has great hands, he's a big guy and he uses those 2 skills very well by taking great shots from literally anywhere in the offensive zone and burying the puck when it's close to the net... This is the kind of player I see being able to score 25-35 goals every year (which isn't a far fetched assessment considering he just scored something like 33 last year), and I think that perhaps between 1 and 3 times he would be able to score 40.

Of course I don't see him as a perennial 40 goal scorer, it would be a ridiculous claim. But with his skills and his playing type, he could get it at least once, and continue to score a lot of goals for many, many years...
