Career 20 goal seasons: 2
Aside from Jonathan Huberdeau, Fleischmann should have the best shot of reaching 20 goals this season for the Florida Panthers. Similar to Huberdeau, the biggest obstacle that could hold Fleischmann back is health. If Flash can stay on the ice for 75 games he should be a pretty good bet to exceed 20. He will be given top line minutes and he will also be a featured player on the power play. In 2011-12, Fleischmann’s first season with the Panthers, he played in all 82 games and scored 27 goals. While he was playing on a very productive line with Kris Versteeg and Stephen Weiss, he should be able to come close to reproducing that level of production this year, providing he stays on the ice.
The Odds: 2-1
