Our team does not have star scorers.
Our first line scorers (Hags-Step-Nash) are probably only going to be at 45-65 points.
Our 2nd line will probably be 40-55 point guys.
Nash will make 9 mill and probably be around 65 points.
BR will make 9 mill and probably be in that 50-60 point range.
We have a lot of guys that will only score 10-20 points next season.
It's not fair to set limitations on our offensive potential. We have some serious talent up front. Stepan was close to a point per game last season and improving every year. Nash, tough playoffs aside, still is a beast to play against and racks up points. Callahan can score 30 goals if healthy. Richards has the talent to put up 80 points. He has done it many times. He needs to be in the best shape ever both physically and mentally to regain his form. And then you have other guys like Brassard and Hagelin and Kreider and Zuccarello who have talent and are looking to find consistency. Plus we have good skating defensemen that can get the puck up ice and on the sticks of our skilled players. If things come together with a new coach, especially our power play, and I'm not saying they will but they might, we have the potential to have a good offensive team, on top of a young deep d core and probably the best goalie in the world. Recipe for success. Zuccarello is a very affordable piece in the puzzle, albeit tiny. He's good value. You don't drop the ball on this. Get him signed.
