The club potted 200 markers total. That was good for second worst in the OHL's western conference.
The team needs to up that amount if it wants to progress in the manner management is expecting.
So how does it happen? Well, it might not be too far fetched to see the Rangers pot 300 or more goals next season.
Sounds crazy, I know. But take a look at the numbers.
The look of the team may change a bit by puck drop in September, but for the sake of working with what we know, let's keep it to current rostered players.
As mentioned, the Rangers scored 200 goals, they lose 25 next season with the departure of Radek Faksa, Ben Thomson, Evan McEnny, Eric Ming and Ben Fanelli.
That's 125 goals to make up to hit 300.
I'm not saying it will happen, but here's how it could (player, goals from last season and projection for the next campaign).
First, the biggies.
Justin Bailey, 25 to 35: He's an elite guy in the making with a knack for the net. Natural progression, ice-time and linemates suggest he could see a 10-goal increase.
Ryan MacInnis, 16 to 25: A potential first or second round pick in this year's NHL draft is going to be expected to score more. He has shown flashes and a nine goal increase as a sophomore isn't unrealistic.
Matia Marcantuoni, 15 to 25: Expecting the overager (if he returns) to set a career high in goals may be asking a bit much. But he has the speed and skill to do it. And as an OA, it's his year to shine. Consider he more than doubled his goal total year over year this past season despite playing fewer games.
Brandon Robinson, 7 to 25: This is the X-factor. He scored three goals in 25 games for the Rangers but injuries disrupted his season. He had 15 and 17 respectively in each season with Brampton/North Bay before arriving at the Aud. It's there, things just have to break right.
The next tier.
Brent Pedersen, 18 to 25: Pedersen is becoming a good power forward. He has improved his goal total every year in the league and his fourth should be no different. Seven more ginos isn't asking a lot.
Nick Magyar, 20 to 25: Let's not put too much pressure on the Rangers' leading goal scorer from this past season. Yes, he has the skill to do more, but a 25-goal campaign would be pretty sweet for a guy who also likes to dish the puck.
Darby Llewellyn, 25 to 25: Another no pressure situation. Llewellyn's torrid pace slowed in the second half and I think Rangers fans would be more than happy with another 25-goal season. Anything more would be a bonus.
Dominik Kubalik, 18 to 20: He's already practically there. He had 17 as a rookie and 18 last year. Two more? No problem.
Curtis Meighan, 11 to 20: This is based purely on the Ming/Thomson model, both of whom set career highs in goal scoring during their OA year (33 and 27). Meighan's confidence surged this season and the results showed. Onward and upward.
Mason Kohn 9 to 15: He was one of the hottest Rangers to end the season. He's still very young and undersized but plays big. Ice-time may be an issue but he's the kind of guy who would find a way to bag 15.
Max Iafrate 8 to 15: He's coming off his best year and will be a steady force during his OA season (again, assuming he doesn't sign a free agent deal and move on). He gets PP time and has a lumbering shot. He more than tripled his point total this year with increased ice time.
Second overall draft pick 0 to 15: The Rangers are going to get a stud with their first round draft pick. Whoever it is, will be an impact rookie. Pencil in 15 for said lad.
Mike Davies 5 to 10: The first round draft pick will be looking to rebound after a quiet year offensively. Skill is there for a small increase.
Logan Schmidt, 2 to 8: Gets PP time, collected 23 assists. If a few of those don't get tipped in, he'll see more goals.
Frank Hora 1 to 5: Like Schmidt, I don't think it's outrageous to expect a modest uptick in goals.
Scott Teskey and Jimmy Soper, 4 to 8 (combined): They're role players but doubling their totals second time around with the Rangers is doable.
Dylan Di Perna, Dmitrii Sergeev, Doug Blaisdell, 4 to 10 (combined): Nothing against these guys but not everyone is going to go on a scoring spree. And somebody has to play defence. Still, small improvements should be expected.
Do the math and that's 311 goals, which would have ranked fourth best in the west this year.
Is it going to happen? Probably not. But I think it's a good measuring stick of a best-case scenario.
At the very least, it provides a flash of the potential of the group moving ahead.
Things may not be so dour next season after all.
