Maybe tone it down just a tad? 220 might be more reasonable.
That's why I said, "if everyone plays to his potential." Those numbers aren't the expectation; they are the absolute maximum we can produce if everyone stays healthy, if everyone is consistent, and if everyone plays their best game every night. That almost assuredly won't happen, but, honestly, we scored 237 goals in 2011-12 with a wholly mediocre group of forwards that wasn't too tremendously different from this one. If anyone can get blood from this rock, it's Barry Trotz.

I still stand by my belief that we could have done more with the opportunities we were given to improve the offense, and that the contracts we gave out to Cullen and Nystrom will come back to haunt us, but this team has the potential, however, faint, to be very good.
