Every Goal, 2011-12: Daniel Sedin, part one

We tend to save the best for last here at Pass it to Bulis (probably because, like all Canuck fans, we are inherently masochistic). With that in mind, the Every Goal series now draws to a close the same way it did last year: with a week dedicated to the goal-scoring prowess of Daniel Sedin.

Daniel saw a step back in terms of production this year, a sad fact I would attribute to three factors: first, he had a career year in 2010-11, so some dropoff was probably inevitable. Second, a run to the Stanley Cup Final may have proved to everyone what the Sedins were capable of, but it had the negative side effect of making opposing coaches fear the twins more and giving those coaches ample time to observe how best to defend them. Third — and this is a pretty big one — suffering a season-ending concussion tends to slow one’s production right the heck down.

But Daniel was still pretty good. He may not have led the team with 41 goals, but he still led the team with 30. Today we take a look at the first 10.
