If we can get Gags for 4 a year it seems about right and better production.
I have some data on this but it is out of date by a few years.
It does not break things down for only forwards but it does give you some expected point range for various salary ranges.
You want to know about salaries in the $5M range. If you go by the cap this todays salaries are roughly 13% higher than they were back then so the proper number to use would be about $4.4M in the charts I put together. This means that the 2009 median for this salary range was 19 goals and 44 points.
Less than you might think I'll bet.
BTW I really would like to update these charts but do it a little more finely by separating ELC's, 2nd contracts and UFA deals.
