12 goals in 16 games.

I know Malkin does but, but is there any other player with more than 12 goals this year?

Pretty damn impressive anyway!

A big, fast and skilled guy, consistent and smart. Could be the first homegrown talent to score more than 30 goals in years. It's not a fluke anymore he's been producing like this for a year, it's like he stole all of Gomez's goals

All of this when we were even uncertain of his future in general a few months ago.

EDIT : Perry also has 12, so it's a tie for 2nd.

He's awesome! If it wasn't for his 10 game scoring drought + 3 game suspension, he'd be top 10 for goals in the NHL for sure.

I have to be honest, I did not expect him to be this good not even in wildest dreams.

Not even just 2012. This season he is currently outscoring guys like Kovalchuk, Tavares and Spezza and is tied with Alex Ovechkin. Damn impressive.

I pulled this little doosy out of the predictions thread from the beginning of the season. I was wrong about a lot of things, particularly that whole Subban and Cammalleri number, but I'm looking pretty good for predicting 30+ for Patches

His hockey is 100x better than 2 years ago, that's for sure. Just to play devil's advocate, he seems to have lost the aggressiveness in his game since he started playing with Cole. I hope it's a temporary thing.

Didn't know he was doing that well, great to see though! I'm hoping he can manage to hit 35 by the end of the season, I know it's tough but 12 goals in 27 games should be do-able.

Anyone think he can get 17 in 27 to hit 40 for the year?

9 for Gomez....

Kidding it is always fun to see the old prediction, it is never right.

You seem to have nailed a few, though. Many would have scoffed (and still do) at Eller scoring 15. Good call. Maybe a bit low on DD, but nobody could have predicted how the cole/DD/Pax line would heat up. Still a good projection, though, considering you took it into account that Markov would be present.

It'll be fun to revisit those threads at the end of the year, you're closer so far than I am.

Definitely and incredible year for Patches. So good to see this kid develop into a top scoring winger. I remember last year right before the Chara hit he was on fire as well. I only see him getting better. Such good chemistry on that line.

Pac's not any bigger than Kovalev is, unless you meant "drafted" obviously.

Well, the only things that have stopped him when he's producing like this have been:

1.) Almost dying

2.) 3 game suspension

So we really don't know how long his "streaks" typically last, or if they're even streaks at all. Maybe he just scores like this. Nothing flashy, he just flat-out scores goals.

If he does get that same aggressiveness back, he's very very hard to stop. It'll come back. Cole was tentative after the Orpik hit too. By next year, Patches will be a mix of what he is now, with the same reckless, full-steam-ahead speed he was playing with before the Chara incident.

...My prediction? 35.

i think it'll come though.

Who cares if he lost the aggressiveness? If he keeps scoring goals like this, it shouldn't mind.

Of course, Perry had a hatty tonight, so the stats aren't up-to-date.

He's starting to look like a real powerforward and that excites me much more than his goals.

The OP was talking about goals in 2012 (i.e from since January 2012)
