2011/2012 OHL Scoring Champ

Loosepucks is currently running a poll on Twitter as to who people think will win the scoring race this coming season.

My choice is Tyler Toffoli.

Top 5:

Toffoli
Yakupov
Thomas
Kuhnhackl
Saad

I like Strome but think he'll miss too many games between the start of the season and the WJC.

Goal scoring or point scoring?

Yakupov and Strome as obvious choices

But Toffoli and Christian Thomas also have a REALLY good chance.

Many times it comes down to a good player that doesn't make their World Junior team. There are several good candidates already listed and every year a surprise comes along.

Strome was my choice last season, so I'll stick with him this season. Like you say, it will come down to how many games missed. Given that will likely come in to play, the odds on favorite has to be Nail Yakupov.

Cheers,
Shawn

I think it will be Yakupov due to him likely having the best offensive sidekick in Galchenyuk. They are going to put up a ton of PP points this year.

A dark horse for me is Sgarbossa...

Out of the the ones there were there last year.... Yakupov, Galchenyuk, Prince, Toffoli and Strome....

Outside shot at Thomas hitting 60 goals.

no respect for Greg Mckegg! Really though, if he is back by the start of the season from leafs camp I think he can lead the league in goals and points.

He'll definitely be up there. He's in my top 10 for sure.

He'll miss time with Leaf camp too, almost certainly. Regardless, he simply isn't in the same bracket as Strome/Yakupov/Taffoli.

Best,
Shawn

I am going with Strome. I feel like Yakupov's opportunity for ice time will be diminished a bit from last year with all of Sarnia's depth signings.

Long term, his ability is certainly not that of Strome's or Yakupov's. The only reason I feel he'll do so well is because he's already had 2 great OHL seasons, and he's older than a lot of the other elite players. I'll go with top 5, depending on games missed he could fall to the top 15 or even push into the top 3.

Good points. I would have him 5-6. I'll admit I don't watch as much of the west as of the east, but it doesn't seem to me that he has the supporting casts the others at the top of the list. I would think that Yakupov, Strome, Toffoli and Thomas will all finish ahead of him for sure. It will be interesting to see what Yakupov/Galchenyuk/Carnevale can do together on the PP. My bet is lots...

Cheers,
Shawn

I'm going with a dark-horse - Tom Kuhnhackl.

Yep, I may be biased, but here's my reasoning:

The kid scored around 40 goals last year and that's after an adjustment period.

He's got a young, eager group of kids around him, so he'll get the top playing time with serious potential talent.

He's not going to be mentioned in the same group as Yakupov and Strome, but I'm saying it now...Top 5 in league scoring!

Ill take Galchenyuk.. Yakupov is better overall IMO, but Alex I think may miss less time this year due to the WJC's and Yakupov has a little more pressure after him being a bit better last year then Alex. I think dark horses are Sgarbossa, Cousins from up north.. not to sure about the rest of the league.. I heard someone else say Saad, he had a brutal second half, but if he put it together, he would be the definition of a dark horse.

I saw that after, haha, but I still don't think many are going to predict Tommy near the top.

Here is what i Think

Toffoli if he plays 58 games or more he will average 2 points a game this year if he plays in the OHL.

Yakupov if he only missings the WJC

Strome if he only missings the WJC

Martindale always a OA in the running could be first as he will not miss any games for the WJC

Thomas don't think he missing many games

OK then McKegg can produce 2points a game for 115+ points

All I said was he would have 40+++ goals 55+++ assits

Kind of surprsied when people get upset about their local player isnt posted on an arbitraty list.

End of the day I have a feeling someone who no one expected will lead the league in scoring, an OA who has a break out year.

I will pick a longshot based on 2 criteria
1-He gets sent back rather quickly from the NHL
2-He gets traded quickly also to a contender

My pick is Ryan Spooner
