Does Phil Kessel Score Over or Under 35 Goals This Season?
The Pittsburgh Penguins new winger, Phil Kessel, is known for his ability to “put the biscuit in the basket” with the best of them.
Historically, he posted 37 goals twice – the 2011 and 2013 seasons. He put up 36 in his final season with Boston, back in 2008. Excepting for the strike-shortened season when he scored 20 goals, last season’s 25 goals is his lowest since his first two full seasons in the league.
Setting the bar at a reasonable 35 goals, do you think Kessel will score more or less than that?
@THWMark @LCJS I could see it under

@LCJS If James Neal can get 40, Kessel can at least do that. Kessel is much more skilled than Neal IMO

@LCJS if healthy, Kessel has the skill to score 50+, Neal was able to score 40 and there's a big difference in talent

Personally, I think that if Kessel scores less than 30 goals, it’s criminal. If he scores less than 40 goals, it’s underwhelming. Anything over that should be expected, as he is going to be playing with the best talent of his career.
What do you think? Over or under?
