1 of 12

Who will net 20 goals for the Red Wings this season? Octopus Thrower takes a look at the locks – and some dark horses – to lead the team in scoring this season.

Tomas Tatar 
2014-15 Goals: 29
Likelihood it happens in 2015-16: Bank it
Why it will happen: Tats had the breakout season everyone expected, and will only build on his success under Jeff Blashill. What’s most exciting with him is the playoff potential. While others have faded on the grander stage, Tatar notched three goals in seven playoff games, and should the Wings make an extended playoff run this season he’s got the potential to flourish. Hopefully he can do this again – one of the best GIFs of all time.
