Forgetting the fact he's scored 40 in 100 games since he left town. 100 games is more than enough to even out any hot and cold streaks.
100% absolutely correct. If you don't score 30 goals in a season, you are not a 30 goal scorer. You can be on pace for it, but having never done it, you are not one. The term refers to a player that has scored 30 goals over the course of a full season, not a guy that would have if he didn't get injured or the season was longer or a guy that has scored 30 goals over his last X games from this and last season combined.

This is a pretty ridiculous argument, really. I mean, is Mike Bossy a 70 goal scorer? He scored 70 in 82 games spanning two seasons. Is Mario Lemiux a 200 point guy? And so forth and so on.
