Well, goals generally are scored by the players.

Forward group isn't ideal but given the elite defense and goaltending, it's decent enough.

Hagelin-Stepan-Nash
Zuccarello-Richards-Callahan
Kreider-Brassard-Pouliot
Boyle-Moore-Dorsett

Realistically you can expect Hagelin/Stepan/Nash/Richards/Callahan/Brassard/Pouliot to crack the 15+ goal barrier, and all of them could realistically break the 20 goal barrier as well (although the chances for Pouliot/Brassard are a little lower than the other four). Kreider has the potential to hit 15+, that fourth line is about as good as you'll find, and Zuccarello provides a nice playmaking touch.

I'm really not seeing the panic about the forward group. It'll get better over the next year or so when Miller/Fast/Lindberg/Kristo start to crack the roster and Kreider hopefully solidifies his spot.
