He fired only 56 shots on net in those first 12 games. Last season, en route to connecting for a league-leading 65 goals, he unloaded 446 times in 82 games. When AO is shooting, and shooting a lot, he is more confident (along with his skating), and with confidence comes goals. Even with this slow start, ink him in right now for 50 goals, or I turn in my kangaroo leather Tacks to Goodwill.

Totally agree with Kevin. As I said, when he didn't shoot in the last game I thought he lost confidence, not because he was 'too cute'. If he'll go ahead and start shooting like he used to, it will come...
TSN.CA puts Ovie on pace for 20 goals. What should I turn in to Goodwill?
