That's great, but what is a reasonable goal total for him to live up to his contract?

200 goals ....  Over / Under?

Over.......201.  I think it mostly will depend on health, but 200 is probably just about the right spot to set that.

Jeff Skinner and the evolution of my view ...

Early on, he was a talent, a diver, and, no disrespect to him, a concussion susceptible risk.  I was firmly in the @TrueBlueGED camp.

Since, I’ve enjoyed either watching him grow, or simply learning more about that which was always there.

Then, today. https://buffalonews.com/2019/08/08/buffalo-sabres-jeff-skinner-nhl-bill-bowler-jason-botterrill-barbara-underhill-tracy-weinman-jorge-blanco-jari-byrski-hockey-conditioning-news-2019/

I dig this kid.  Leadership by example.  It’d be easy to collect $72 million and go to the islands for a few weeks ...

Skinner's contract like it or not is the going rate. Salaries are what they are. We used to complain we had cheap owners and couldn't compete with teams. Now we complain that we're spending too much.

This is me. Was not a fan from a distance.

Seeing him up close changed my perspective.

Same. I was totally wrong about not wanting him here. He's got that Danny Briere attitude.

I dunno, he's the same guy he was in Carolina. The only difference is he's scoring goals for us instead of against us. I'll continue to cheer every goal he scores, but I don't think he's a fundamentally different player.

Well, I'd amend this slightly to say his contract is the going rate for what he gave us last season. It's an overpay if he reverts to his Carolina days and only delivers two 30-goal seasons.

Jeff Skinner nine seasons 244 goals seems like average of 27.111 is pretty good and commands the type contract he signed for. Now, if you just don't like the player fine but that's his average goal output.

I was a fan from a distance.  It seemed like he always scored the backbreaker against us, glad to have him doing that for us.
