4. Ryan Getzlaf

Ryan Getzlaf is no stranger to putting up serious numbers. The second highest scorer in the league last season, Getzlaf has seen a resurgence in his offensive game in the last couple seasons, returning to the form that had him flirt with the 100-point mark in his younger years.

While Getzlaf is a long-shot to beat out any of the players above him on this list, his unreal chemistry with former Rocket Richard Trophy-winner Corey Perry leaves open the possibility that the two could ramp it up and find some very dangerous consistency.

Add in the fact that the Ducks brought in Ryan Kesler this summer, and we could see enough of an improvement in the powerplay department to allow Getzlaf to raise his scoring stature.
