Only requirement is that they have reached the 30 goal plateau atleast once since the year 2002. I'm gonna say David Clarkson or Jonathan Cheechoo

Hmm, Daze? Anson Carter? Svatos? Prucha?

For me, it'd be one of Svatos or Prucha, I'll go Svatos.

I thought Daze's story was that he was quite good but an injury did him in.

Yeah, anyone that would mention Daze in this thread didn't see him play, what a joke, guy was a goal machine.

Prucha. Svatos wasn't a bad player he just couldn't cope with the physicality of the NHL.

Same with Prucha. He wasn't bad. He was just too weak. The guy couldn't handle defensive responsibility and he got absolutely buried at least once per game.

Jason Blake scored 40 and I'd still toss him on this list as a serious contender.

Cheechoo was more of an injury doing him in than his skill/luck running out.

At the time it wasn't Gomez. As a Habs fan Ryder was pretty one dimensional at the time. Couldn't do much else but could definitely snipe on the PP.

The correct answer is Chris Clark.

He scored 30 in 74 GP in 2006-07 at the age of 30, and retired after 2010-11 with 103 in 607. Average 11 goals per 82 games outside of that one season. Bryan Little is the runner-up with an average of 18 goals outside of his 30-goal year; Prucha only averaged 14 after his 30-goal rookie season but wasn't really given playing time (played bottom six a lot) while Little played a lot of 1st/2nd line and PP time.

Clark had zero business being anywhere near 30.

I think this actually may be the best answer. Little shouldn't be included though, he's a pretty good player.

Prucha and Svatos have both been mentioned already (deservedly so).

I don't think people should say Cheechoo, he was pretty good before his knees gave out and he had a few good statistical seasons.

Prucha, Clark, and Svatos are a good top 3.


I loved that Rangers fan that said he wouldn't trade Prucha for Crosby

All the Prucha comments bring me back to that short period of time when people were actually arguing that he was better than Crosby

Also, Cheechoo doesn't belong in this thread. He had 28 in the year before Thornton was traded to San Jose, and was on pace for 24-27-51 when Thornton joined the Sharks (7-8-15 in his first 24) which was actually a slightly better start than the previous season (6-5-11 in his first 24, or 21-17-38). As you can see, he was a slow starter, improving his pace by around 25% in the remaining games. Which puts him as a 30-34-64 in 2005-06 if Thornton isn't acquired, assuming the same improvement. If we're going to say that a decently skilled guy who benefited from being the go-to guy for a highly skilled playmaker is the winner of this thread, why not Milan Hejduk? He hit 50 with Forsberg one year, and 30 a couple others. When has he hit/come close to 30 without a highly skilled playmaker (Forsberg, Sakic, Stastny)? He hasn't. Good circumstances for a guy who can put the puck in the net. The difference is that Cheechoo was traded and lost his confidence, and it killed his career. He could have continued on as a perennial 30-goal guy. He had the skill, and probably still has the shot to park a few in the net if a team were to take the chance on him. Ottawa was a bad fit. San Jose was a great fit. He might not be a bad option for Chicago, actually, if he can recapture his magic. Play Kane as the 2C and take advantage of his playmaking abilities, utilize Cheechoo's shot. It would be kind of an Oates/Hull situation where Chechoo's job is basically to find the scoring spot and wait for Kane to get him the puck. Kane's shot and the fact that they'd be against 2nd units are threatening enough to offset the improved QoC compared to the early 90s when Hull could just stand around while Oates did all of the work.
