"Cy Young" candidates...

Discussion in 'The History of Hockey' started by TubbyTerrion*, Feb 16, 2007.

  1. Jordan Staal at 24-6 certainly has this year's Cy Young award locked up.

    Ever look up the career of Ron Sedlbauer? This guy was not much of a passer :)

    Wendel Clark had a few seasons like that (34-11, 32-16)
     
  3. Yeah, Sedlbauer was 40-16 in his "big year," but i think in his 12 years playing he only had 2 years when he had more assists than goals... and that was not by much :)

    Joe Malone's a good one. Actually anybody who played in the real early NHL years is a good choice.

    Adam Graves, had a couple; 52-27 in '93-94, then 38-15 in '98-99. Bill Guerin had a 41-25 year in Boston ('01-02)

    What about John Druce (14-3), Chris Kontos (9-0), and Fernando Pisani (14-4) in their big playoff years?

    Joe Malone is not a good example. They simply did not give out assists freely in those days.

    Bure had a year or two like that 58g-36a and 59g33a. Even in his short first season with Florida he had 13g-3a in 11 games.

    I cant believe no one has mentioned Lanny McDonald. In '82-83 only Gretzky had more goals as he went 66g-32a for 98 points. Come on Lanny you couldnt even get two more assists for 100 points?

    Richard in is big year in '44-45 had 50g-23a. Bondra (34-9) and McDonald's I think are the biggest ones. You'd think Bondra could rack up more assists if the led the league in goals. And 66 goal scorer? You'd think he'd pass nearly as much with that kind of production

    Staal right now is having a great season though. yes the 6 assists stick out but oer his career he'll even that out no doubt. He's had Malkin hitting him with passes to so it's easier to score when a guy like that is feeding you. But it's how and when he's scored the goals. He's been pretty clutch so far, 5 sh goals, a hat trick last week for the game winner. He's a gem, he'll rack up more assists in time

    Reggie Leach had some 2-1 goals to assist seasons in 75-76 and 79-80. (60 goals 31 assists in 76; then 50 goals 26 assists in 80).

    But since he was usually playing with a great passer in Bobby Clarke and a very good one in Bill Barber, splitting hairs doesnt mean all that much.

    Most of the guys mentioned like Leach possessed great shots and were of most value to their teams when taking many shots.
