I'll be happy if he puts up 40 point next season. He could put up 60+.

I'll second that.

Talked with a die-hard, Hawk fan friend of mine who sees it the exact same way as you describe. He cautioned against getting my hopes too high but says we might be real pleasantly surprised with VS.

At 3 mil a year, I'd be fine with that .

If he scores more than sk's 3 goals I'll be happy. Realistically though, 20ish would be fantastic.

With our style of play, I'll say around 35 pts. Would be happy if more but not sure he is the answer...

with first line minutes, I definitely think anything less than 50 is a disappointment.

Agreed... I think that 20-25 goals and 25-30 assists is where his expected production should be for 1st line minutes, power play time, and likely being the designated sitter in the box for bench penalties. Hell Sergei Krivokrasov produced those numbers for the expansion Predators. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=2825
I don' think that's unreasonable at all...

If he takes a lot of shots in our system, he should be able to produce at those numbers. He'll also likely get a lot of breakaways coming out of the box from a penalty kill like Sullivan used to by being the designated sitter.

Trotz doesn't give "1st line minutes".

Check out to see how far down the list our big minute forwards are.

Even with all our injuries and call ups, David Legwand's 18:25 minutes a game was 87th in the league in TOI.

Trotz like high energy short shifts evenly divided.

IF Horn can keep up, I'd like to see him parked while VS fires on net.

I will say this- regardless of how anyone feels about the Stalberg signing, you've got to like his comments/attitude- seems genuinely excited about playing here and is looking to prove that he can be a top 6, elite forward......

He's a pretty cool dude. I've been watching him since he was at Vermont, he was really dynamic there. I also think that he will fit into the community of Nashville really well, a lot more fitting for him than a huge town like Toronto or Chicago.

So, instead of first line minutes, he'll be on the top scoring line and top powerplay unit. Either way, he's going to be given the opportunity to be the go-to scoring threat. If he doesn't completely crap the bed, then 50 points is an extremely reasonable expectation.

I think Stalberg is going to be really good in Nashville. He wants his chance to be the man or one of them on offense and i think he will get that shot unlike in Chicago. Kind of nice seeing a guy wanting to come in and prove himself. Should be a nice fit.

Asked whether he got a fair shot at top 6 in Chicago he replies "yes and no". Well he'll get a fair shot here that's for sure. 4 years of a fair shot.

with limited ice time he average 44 points in 82 games the last 2 seasons. I'm sure he could hit 25-30 goals and 50-55 points. He's will be on the power play and play top 6 minutes.

probably 10-15g and 20-30 assist. Not setting my standards too high but i'd be more than happy with 40+ points. Anything over 50 is a win for Nashville.

I think this is right on the money right here. With that being said. Stalberg has played himself off of 2 teams now, so his numbers will probably end up being a little less than whats expected of him.

After reading comments from Hawks fans, I'm worried he'll be shuffled up and down lines by Trotz. It was mentioned often that he doesn't backcheck. If true, he'll end up with Goose and Nystrom on the 4th line. Bad habits are hard to break. Hope he proves the CHI fans wrong.
