This organization hasn't had 2 30+ goal scorers since 2007-2008 or a 40 goal scorer since the same year when Rolston had 31 goals and Gaborik had 42 goals during that season. We haven't had a 70+ point producer since that year as well.

So what's more probable...a 40 goal scorer or two of our forwards potting 30+ goals in a season? And when?

(BTW the last time we had anyone score 25 goals was 2 years ago when Lats and Bruno both potted 25...sad really...)

could go either way. if we had the whole team healthy i'd say two 30 goal guys. if there are injuries to one of the main threats i'd say another guy gets more quality minutes to put up 40 (more likely, IMO, than someone stepping up significantly). what was heatley's scoring pace with Koivu out?

Heatley might get close to 30 this season. How about 1 30 goal guy or 2 20 goal guys?

I don't see Heater reaching 30 this year but if he could reach 27 I'd be satisfied. Assuming a healthier Koivu next year I can see Heater getting over 30. It all takes time and that's one thing we have a lot of unfortunately.

Heatley's on pace for (IIRC) 27 goals at the moment. If you cajole the numbers a bit for the sole purpose of making the stats look different, you could likely claim based upon last [x] games he's on pace for more.

Heatley bothers me a little...everyone can rag on him for not being fast enough but he still gets the chances...has shown plenty of opportunities to score this year.

He could easily have 30-35 by seasons end if he buried more.

I think next year he could pleasantly surprise people as the bounces might fall his way more..

The team has had atrocious luck with bounces. Heatley could easily have 25 goals right now if it weren't for a few bad bounces and a few whiffs.
