On August 7, 2011, I wrote my second article predicting the candidates for the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy for top goal scorer of the 2011-12 season.
Sidney Crosby was essentially replaced with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal after having to sit out most of the season. Corey Perry showed he still had good stuff even on an underachieving team. Patrick Marleau might be running out of gas.
As we saw with last season, goal scoring is still at a premium, and the amount of players who rack up big-time numbers are dwindling off.
Stamkos was the only player in the league to score 60, similar with Malkin at his 50-goal mark. To make matters worse, only Neal and Gaborik were able to hit the 40-goal mark. However, there was plenty of close competition biting at their heels.
Time to take a look at who's going to score the most goals next season.
