Kind of amazing to think about.
If he stays healthy, in 6 years (seasons) time he should definitely reach 600 goals... This is a conservative estimate assuming an average of 35 goals or so a season.... If he goes on a tear and has some 50 goal seasons, he'll get there a bit sooner....

Trying to imagine what Stamkos will do... He's 23 right now and already has 200 goals....

It's so impressive to see these players scoring at this rate by today's NHL standards.... When you watch the games from the 70's / 80's you see how much different the gameplay was and how little of the net the goaltenders were able to cover....
