Top 5 in goal scoring?


Thought this would be an interesting look at the individual goal scoring that the "current" Avs have produced during their best season from one of the last three years. Listed is the highest amount of goals scored in one of the three seasons. This is not adjusted across 82 games due to time in the minors (Lindstrom), injuries (Jones), age (Hejduk) or struggles (Kobasew) so one number may be a little low (Lindstrom) while one may seem a little high (Kobasew). With a mostly young and growing team you would expect for continued advancement in goal/point production but this at least gives a quick look of what they already have produced and at the very least could fall around. 

 

Lindstrom (9) Stastny (22) Jones (27)

Mueller (22) Duchene (27) Hejduk (27)

Galiardi (15) OReilly (13) Winnik (11)

Porter (14) McClement (12) Kobasew (22)

Not counted: McCleod (15) / Yip (12)

FORWARDS (221)

 

Quincey (6) EJ (10)

Hejda (5) OByrne (1)

Wilson (3) Hunwick (6)

Not counted: Cumiskey (7)

DEFENSE (31)

 

Goals scored: 252

(a 25 goal increase over 2010-2011 and an 8 goal increase over 2009-2010)

 

This doesn't take into account potential rookies (Hishon, Landeskog, Elliott, Barrie, etc) who may bump a few of the guys out so there is potential for a slightly increased scoring output. Nor does it take into consideration the "odd man" out but it does show their best goal output and the potential to offset some lost scoring due to injuries. A few may think that it would take a miracle for every player to recreate their best goal total (from the past three years) but when you look at it, with a young growing team they should be able to fall around those projections and could increase upon them. The only teams to score more than 252 goals last year were Philly (259), Detroit (261), Chicago (258), and Vancouver (262). That would put the Avs at #5 (and they were #6 in 2009-2010).
