no one will know

i say we quit worrying how many points he gets and just watch...and soon enough we will find out

i hope he does, but im sure he wont but im positive he will lead this team in points this season.

I think Penner could, but I think he will probably get 60+ on the realistic side.

As much as I am pulling for Penner to sustain this pace all year, I don't think it's realistic. He is a completely different player from last year but you have to wonder if old Penner might creep back into his game a bit once he gets comfortable.

I would be happy with 30-30-60

That's a pretty tall order on a team like this.

I'd be quite happy with 60-65.

so that would mean 19-19-38pts in last 63games.. @ 0.60pts \game
hmm still much better then last year's pace..

no, not a chance

this team is nowhere near good enough for that.... we have two players who know how to play in the other teams zone right now (penner and hemsky) and then an entire team of players who couldn't hit the broad-side of a barn if their lives depended on it

lottery teams usually don't have players that score 80+ points, and we're a lottery team

Give me a break. Half the team is on IR and when they were together they were top in the league for GF. They're doing what they can under the circumstances.

Only if he and the rest of the team can stay healthy, so he has some support.

80 is unlikely but I do feel confortable in saying he'll hit 70 points. He's only 48 points off with over 60 games to go....

I'm thinking he goes 57-48-105. With a +27.

they were tops in the league for GF when they had a completely unsustainable 15% shooting percentage.... there was no way, healthy or not, that they would have continued to score at the early season pace

but we're not talking about the team, just penner and the guy is still on pace for more. I don't know that he will get it, but you can't dismiss it as impossible the way the guy has been playing so far this year.

I think he could, so many great powerforwards did the same thing and just came out of no where one year.

that being said I wouldn't bet on it, I would think he gets 70 though.

Penner can if he plays like this the entire seson. If his play slips to how he was last year then probably not. But I don't see any reason why his play would slip as of right now.

The Oilers need to find someone to play with Penner in order for him to realize his potential.

if this team actually can stay "healthy" for the rest of the year and their offense picks back up when the initial roster is back - maybe. but if its chaos in the roster for the rest of the year id guess about 32-30'ish. 60-65 points. i just hope he continues with this attitude and playing style for the remainder of his contract and possibly into a new one while the Oilers somehow manage to get a true first line center and more consistent D at clearing the zone.

An approximate average is around 20players/yr put up in the neighborhood of 80pts in a season and with most of these being chronic top of the charts, i.e., elite players.

That said in any one year theres usually a couple surprises and players you wouldn't normally find up there.

But in the vast majority of those cases said player would be drafting behind a linemate that put up even more pts.

So I have to ask the question:

How the hell would Penner ever finish with 80pts unless Hemmer had around 100.

You gotta think that the first oiler to hit ppg in ages would be Hemsky.
