from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,
It seems patently ridiculous to suggest that Vrana could be a 50-goal scorer. Detroit hasn’t seen a player ascend to those goal-producing heights since Sergei Fedorov and Ray Sheppard both did it during the 1993-94 season.
Vrana’s best NHL season came with the Washington Capitals in 2019-20. He scored 25 goals over 69 games. That’s a 30-goal season when a full 82-game slate in being factored into the equation.
Another element to consider is power-play opportunity. Vrana is skating with Detroit’s top man-advantage unit. That was never happening in Washington with Alex Ovechkin on the team.
In his 16 games this season, Vrana has accounted for a career-high four power-play goals. He was good for six PPG through his first 295 NHL games.
