In 2012-13 there were even fewer who were on pace to do it (106). But it still comes out to approximately the 4th best goal scorer on a team.
Notables: Ryder, Iginla, Franzen, Cammalleri, Skinner, Bozak, B Richards, B Sutter, Henrique, Bergeron, Perron, Datsyuk, Ribeiro, Giroux, Zetterberg, Alfredsson, M Richards, Filppula.
I surprised myself with some names that missed in either of the two years. Also realized that Toews had 21 ES and SH goals this past year - best in the NHL by two goals over Stamkos and Tavares, 5 better than Ovechkin.
That's definitely surprising, but I still stand by my opinion. I believe Morin can score at a 2G per 12GP pace.
Last year, Chicago had both Bickell and Stalberg on pace for 15+ ES goals. I think Morin's a better goal-scorer than both.
