slightly off-topic...with his next assist Jagr will have 1000 career assists. Quite an accomplishment. In fact it will be at least 5 more seasons before anyone else (Thornton) has even a chance of reaching this milestone, if they even can.

Had Jagr stayed in the NHL those 3 seasons, he would have been near the Top 5 Assists of all time & Top 3 Point scorers.

So that's why he will still command a premium for a playoff run, even at age 41.

 

What if Gordie didn't play 6 full WHA seasons? He'd be looking at what? 920 goals, 1230 assists (and this is being conservative)

 

he'd still be ahead of Gretzky in goals

What if Mike Bossy didn't have a fvcked up back that finished him off in his 30 year old year?

 

Gretzky may have broke his record.   Or maybe he wouldn't have.   7 years averaging 50 per would have gotten him to 923.   And he would have just beaten the dead puck era.

Good one. I feel like Mike Bossy is often a forgotten man when it comes to great scorers.

Bossy averaged 59.4 goals per season in a nine-year period, and was a career 21.2% shooter.  I know it was a different era and a different game, but in a word...DAMN! 

 

Those Cup-winning Islanders were really something else...in that 4-Cup burst (back then it took 15 wins to take the Cup, as the first round was only best-of-five), they went 60-19, only losing between 3 and 6 games total in each playoff season.  Once again...DAMN!

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Yeah, I don't think he would score that many, but if he had a full career he definitely would have been over 800.   He was very consistent, and that's what you need to compile.

 

I thought Ovechkin could make a run (if he stayed healthy, which is a massive "if" given his style), but the last couple of years have really hurt him.   Still he could get to 400 next season in his 28 year old season.

Wow, I just added the side point about the all-time records as an indicator of how high he is on the list.

I too agree that 'if' is the most over-used word in sports. The records are what they are.

Still in the next few days Jagr will become only the 12th player ever to get 1000 assists.

There might be a chance, if somehow bizarro Lou kills real Lou and takes his place, that we'll trade for Jagr.

Bossy was the man, and he really does seem forgotten these days.

I would love to have Jagr to play with Kovalchuk and Loktionov..against soft minutes they would torch. Jagr on the right wall for the PP would be gold as well.

I agree.  I would love to see this happen, but I think there is less than 1% chance Lou lands him

No doubt, but again, it would be monumentally odd for Lou to acquire Jagr.

According to the place he blogs, he says he wouldn't want to be traded, but if he doesn't sign with the stars, devils look to be the main trading partner he will consider.

One upside for Jagr: it would be a wonderful opportunity to "accidentally" bitch slap Coach Stevens with his stick on a regular basis.

I can see this happening. Why?  2 words: ATLANTIC CITY.  JJ is, let's just say, fond of gambling.  I know he used to take helicopter trips from Philly to AC and I was told that him signing in Philly was due to how close he was to casinos.

 

Come Lou, he'll fix the PP and single handedly turn AC around!

I would love to see Jagr land here, I just do not see it happening.   He is playing for the Devils and Isles away from entering the exclusive "Atlantic Division Club"

I could see some deal that involves Fayne and some kind of conditional draft pick.  Perhaps instead of Fayne, it would be Urbom or Gelinas.
