A list, by team, of NHL players who have scored 20 goals in an NHL season, compiled to accompany the story that appeared in today’s editions of The Dispatch:
#1 BOS (10): Bergeron, Kelly, Krejci, Peverly, Savard, Seguin, Milan, Marchand, Rolston, Horton
#2 (tie) DET (9): Datsyuk, Filppula, Zetterberg, Franzen, Holmstrom, Bertuzzi, Cleary, Eaves, Samuelsson
Basically, this is a reminder to us fans – don’t forget that our forward group looks pretty damn strong. Past the perfection of Datsyuk and Zetterberg, we have guys that can score on every line. Sure, some of those player’s heydays are long past (Homer), but that’s not including the new guys: Nyquist and Brunner. I expect one of those two will pot 20 home this year as well.
Hit the jump for more reasons to believe:
Hell, don’t forget that Eaves put up 20 in his rookie year and can score if given the chance. He’s a 4th liner on our team. The third line will have at least two 20 goal guys. And the entire lineup will be a healthy mix of scoring and experience. There’s five lines that can play with talent, grit and speed. Plus, I don’t believe Kenny’s done yet.
Last year Detroit finished with the second most goals in the league, behind only Vancouver by a single tally. There’s no reason that that won’t continue.
Believe it. LGRW.
