    Hartnell. It seemed like he had some off ice issues last season that effected him, so if those are gone I think there’s a good chance we’ll see the 30 goal scorer in him coming back. It should also help him if Laviolette has the patience to keep him together with Brière and Leino.

    I could see those other three being closer to their last year’s level.

    Hoping all four make huge improvements this season over last year. Hartnell had a horrific 2009-10, should be better; Briere figures to be somewhere around his numbers from last year. It seems what we have seen in past regular seasons is what we will continue to get in future regular seasons. He showed his true worth to the team in last years postseason; Coburn has the new contract, I expect some up and down from him again this year. If he doesn’t consistently show the form he did in the playoffs, he may be deadline deal bait for Holmgren to cast into the NHL pool; I feel that Carter has the most to prove, plus it’s a contract year. His goal production fell off last year over 2008-09, and most of his goals were scored in two ultra-hot stretches. His postseason, though no doubt hampered by a broken foot, left much to be desired. He will be a RFA next year in the offseason, so if he doesn’t perform, he will also be dangled at the March deadline. I am betting he has a much better season in 2010-11.

    I think Carter’s output will increase next season but Hartnell has the most room for improvement.

    Can I say none of the above? Cuz I think none fit the bill.

    Carter will leave a lot of rebounds unscored, I believe Hartnell’s 30-goal season was a fluke, and Danny B doesn’t need to rebound after setting a Flyers single-season playoff points record. Coburn is closer to being the next Randy Jones than anything.

    I’m gonna say choice E in James van Riemsdyk…not that I don’t think he’ll have the sophomore slump, but I think he’s going to become more consistent as the year progresses.

    Hartnell has the most room for improvement simply because 14 goals is an anomaly for him. The real Scott Hartnell is a 20-25 goal scorer with the potential to score 30.

    With the other three it’s hard to say what their norms actually are at this point so it’s harder to guess. I think Carter has the potential to have the biggest point swing but I am less certain of him actually reaching it than I am of Hartnell scoring 20+ goals. I do expect all of them to show some improvement but it may not seem as dramatic as Hartnell’s potential 10+ goal swing even though he’ll just be returning to his normal production.

    My optimistic side says it will be Carter, but the easiest bet is Hartnell.

    Hartnell. Like everyone else said, he has the most to improve on. Heck, just staying on his skates is an improvement.

    I said Carter because I feel like he’s the most important one to get going (so thats my hope). I would love to see Briere keep up his playoff production in the regular season but I don’t see that happening. He seems to kick it into another gear when the playoffs start.
