as a hab fan i think he'll be a consistent 30-35 goal scorer. the kid just turned 23. can he hit 40? yes, but a couple of things will need to go right - habs pp has to improve and habs have to get better
lol

that being said i don't think he'll be a consistent 40 goal scorer. that's stamkos / (younger) ovechkin territory. it's the new holy grail

Can we bring that up now?

Limit for Max Pacioretty

Just looked at the Max Pacioretty 30 goal thread. How good could he be? It is his first full season, he's not playing with much help on the Canadians, and though I haven't seen too much of his play, he seemed pretty confident.

Thoughts.

EDIT: I'm not a Habs fan.

he could be someone who scores 40goals, but if this is his ceiling, a 30-35 goal scorer....I'm pretty happy.


He at least should win the Masterson trophy

I like Pacciorety, but that's like the 3rd thread on him in the last 2 days.

You say hes not getting much help. Most other Habs fans say his line is one of the best in hockey. Which is it?

Somewhere around the 40 goal mark. If the Habs PP improves then he can definitely hit that mark.

I think his best season could be 40g-40a, but usually will expect something more along the lines of 30-30. he's already hit that level this season, so i guess it's just a matter of seeing how much better he can get. but i expect him to be a 50-65 point guy for the foreseeable future

Ah habs fans, starting a thread on MP every 5 minutes because their team is terrible. They need to trade him away for draft picks due to how terrible their team is.

I haven't seen any MaxPac threads here so I'll comment.

The guy racks up the shot totals. When you do that, some are going to go in. I think he'll be a 40 goal scorer at some point. He might be able to do better but 50 might be a little high. I'd love to see it but there aren't too many 50 goal men in this league any more.

I think he has the skill to be a consistent 35-40 goal scorer and that's good enough.

The OP is a Sens fan genius.

As for the original question, I think this fits into the "Can Pacioretty reach 40 goals" topic. I see him as a solid 30ish goal guy long term. One or two 40 goal seasons are possible, but it would have to be a perfect storm of situations. He's got a tantalizing combination of size, speed and skill with a strong shot which should mean that this isn't a fluke season. That being said, he doesn't really have that elite talent in an aspect of his game that you really look for in top scorers. He's looking like a top-line scorer and a primary scoring threat, but not someone that you should be exclusively building your offense around.

the OP says Max isn't getting much help on the Canadiens. Other people on this site have created threads saying he plays on one of the best lines in hockey with Cole and Desharnais. That is a contradiction.

70-80 points in a career year. 90 if he plays absolutely beyond his ability.

The "Max isn't getting much help" is false, except on the PP. With an efficient power-play, Pacioretty could have probably already reached 35 goals at this point.

On even strength, Max is playing with great line-mates, so the "Max would be close to Stamkos if he had a superstar center" argument is just some pipe dreams of over ecstatic Habs fans.

If we include the end of last year (before the hit), he's already a 40 goals scorer.

41 goals, 73 pts in his last 86 games.
