The Iginla Milestone March - Legend Territory

34 posts in this topic

As a nod to the Countdown to Iggy's 500 thread. I'd like to keep it going in a different vein.

I think it would be interesting to track Jarome who is now almost game by game passing some of the legends of hockey. Amazing names going by and I think a thread keeping track of it is nice to remind us of what a special player we have with Iggy.

I will predict - rather pedantically, I am afraid - that he hill will finish the season at #34

I'm kind of curious how that would break down on a goals to games played basis.

For instance, Rocket Richard scored 544 in 978 while Hawerchuk needed 1188 to hit 518.

There can never be any direct comparisons as the length of season differed as did the quality of opposition but it would still be cool to see. Heck, even differences in equipment play a part.

I'd take 34rd this season. Pessimist in me says 2 lower. Although Iggy seems to have a better 2nd half to the season.

33rd or 32nd after this season would be a great achievment :D

All different eras too, Richards era was difficult to score, Hawerchuk's not so much, and Iggy's somewhere in between. Equipment on the goalies I think plays a part, but the size in general and how they play also factors. Roy basically brought forward the butterfly goalie which was rare at the time, and also the average height of goalies now has to be around 6-2 quite different from the 5-8 tykes I remember from the 80's.

Neat idea for a thread! I've been enjoying tracking Iggy's progress up the lists myself, so it will be nice to share the fun with others.

I suppose it's worth mentioning that, with his goal against New Jersey, Iggy has passed Lanny and moved into sole possession of #41 all time. One away from catching up to #40!

Kinda cool results. I suspect Lemieux was #1 until his most recent return from injury (I'm pretty sure that's the case with points/game as well, though I have nothing to back up that claim). Interesting how him and Bossy blow everyone else out of the water. Also interesting that only 17 guys (of the top 100 all time) have maintained a .5 average or greater - I wonder if Jagr and Selanne will still be part of that club when they retire? Biggest surprise I'd say is how high Kovalchuk scored.

^ great list!! well done!

Shocking to see how high Neely and especially Bure are...

And how little Richard Martin actually played..

Also impressive how high Kovlachuk is... The man is a special talent... unfortunate "The Contract" will forever skew how people perceive him. But he still has to experience the downside of his peak production yrs, so his goals/gm will come down significantly still...

Neat to see the Hulls back to back...

Thanks Bud. That was interesting. I enjoyed it & will probably return to it as it is really cool.

Bossy @ the top isn't a surprise as he was amazing during that Isles dynasty. Although I wasn't rooting for him I enjoyed watching him play. Him, Trottier & Gilles were 1 heck of a line.

It always surprises me to see Marcel Dionne so high on the goals list as I still have a mental picture of him crying to the refs that he deserves an assist on an LA goal because he was on the ice @ the time.

& I agree DL. I liked seeing Bobby & Brett being ranked that close.

I think Iginla will finish around 519-521G this year. Just missing 33rd all-time this season. He is on pace for 32G 35A season thus far, but always has a better half. Crossing my fingers for more!

Crazy to think that Pavel Bure isn't and may not ever be in the HoF. Just look at the players he's ahead of.

It's safe to say that if his knees didn't fail him so early he would have easily eclipsed the 600 goal mark.

Let's put it this way, if he played 82 games in all 12 seasons of his career, his pace would have seen him score over 600 goals.

With his goal last night against the Kings, Iggy has now cracked the Top 40 (sort of)! One more goal required to tie for #39 with Bondra! And two points away from catching #64 in points.

I just noticed this pinned...

I usually ignore the pinned threads since they're usually announcements, and here this thread is 'hiding' on me...

It is really neat to see Iginla creep up the lists and pass some true legends of the sport...

Not an Iginla fan by any means... but in awe the guy's accomplishments. All due respect.

I suppose it's worth mentioning that, with his goal against Anaheim, aside from taking sole possession of #39 all time, Iggy also sealed the deal on his 13th consecutive 20 goal season (14th in his career)! Still a ways to go to catch Gordie Howe's 22, though :blink: .

Here's hoping he can make it to 11 straight 30 goal seasons!

The Captain of the Calgary Flames is an inspiration to his team and the Calgary Flames Hockey Club. Even though he does not "boast" about his talents as such, the milestones that he has reached demonstrate his efforts and speak for themselves. His is truly an asset to the organization and should be recognized as a great leader. Go Iggy Go!!

Next goal for Iggy means he will join the even more exclusive 30 goal / 11 straight seasons club. Only 7 players in all of NHL history have done it.

Bobby Hull, Wayne Gretzky, Mike Gartner, Jaromir Jagr, Marcel Dionne, Phil Esposito and with Jarome's next goal he joins the 30/11 club as the seventh member.

Leaving behind Mike Bossy, Jarri Kurri and Darryl Sittler who made 10 straight seasons but not 11…

P.S. An active player currently on the verge of entering the 30/10 club is Kovalchuk who has quietly put up 9 straight 30+ goal seasons starting in 2002-03...

Also takes sole possession of #36 all time in goals, and #60 all time in points!

Funny that you said it three times because that is exactly how many years after his retirement it will be before he is inducted!
