Anyone have a top 10 list of the least goals by a forward who has played 500 games since 1967?
the list will probably all be goons
Stu Grimson has 17 goals in 729 games...that's gotta be darn close
*edit* if my math serves me, he scored 9 goals in his first 504 NHL games
So, can anyone explain my Lew Morrison was in the NHL for so long?
Apparently he was a good penalty killer.
He had a lot of heart?
On another note, I haven't heard the name Mick Vukota in a loong time. I think the last time I did the discussion went like this:
Setting: Hockey camp on Long Island
Kid#1: He Mr. Vukota, can I have your autograph.
Mick Vukota: Go away.
Kid #2: Wow, Mick Vukota's an a**h**e
I remember scoring a hat trick with Mick Vukota in NHL '99 for PS1.
Fewest goals/game, forwards, since 1967-68 (min. 500 games):
Ken Baumgartner, 13 goals in 696 games (0.02)
Stu Grimson, 17/729 (0.02)
Mick Vukota, 17/574 (0.03)
Darren Langdon, 16/521 (0.03)
Rob Ray, 41/899 (0.05)
Jim Cummins, 24/511 (0.05)
Jim McKenzie, 48/880 (0.05)
Mark Janssens, 40/711 (0.06)
Kent Manderville, 37/646 (0.06)
Craig Berube, 61/1054 (0.06)
Quoting this, now I can steal pnep's cool tables code.
I thought Gord Donnelly played mostly defense.
I had a similar encounter with baseball player Tom Pagnozzi, who rolled his eyes and acted like it was a freaking chore to sign my nephew's program.
At which point, I reminded him that he was Tom Pagnozzi, not Johnny freaking Bench, and if he wanted to act like an *** in front of kids, he should find a different line of work.
Or Kent Manderville? He was even less productive than Lew.
Actually, that list makes Kent Manderville look totally and utterly useless. At least the other guys on it racked up the PIMs...
Well, he had 104 points in 606 games and that aint bad for a 4th liner.
I remember when Mick Vukota actually scored a hat-trick in the NHL with the Islanders back in the early '90s. Amazing that a player who scored one goal every 35 games or so popped three in one game ... funny that it would prevent him from making the top of this list.
Did I ever tell you about the time me and my friend Spaz got Bob Gainey's autograph?
Not to my recollection. What happened?
Habs vs Bruins exhibition game in Halifax, circa 1982 or so, when the Habs farm team was still in town.
Me and my best friend Spaz from junior high were at the game and we were pumped for some autographs. Spaz's quick eyes spotted gainey through his six inch thick bifocals and he made a bee-line for the Habs star, who wasn't dressed for the exhibition tilt. Gainey looked at the small crowd of six or so kids and gruffly stated that he would sign our programs during the exhibition.
Now Spaz is a lifelong Habs fanatic, so he was ready at the buzzer. We headed back for the Selke winner who then bolted like a thief carrying a stolen donair for the bowels of the Metro Center. I think he underestimated Spaz's will, he wasn't leaving without the ****ing autograph. We chased him down like a pack of lions on a gazelle and he grudgingly signed our papers.
I often look back and wonder if that moment was one of those turning points in Spaz's life where innocence is lost - sort of a fork in the road moment. Spaz probably still has that autograph someplace, but I think a little piece of Spaz's heart withered up when his hero ran away like that.
On a happier note, Terry O'Reilly threw me a puck after the warmup.
Erik Rasmussen is but five goalless games away from joining the ever-popular "500 games before 50 goals" club.
Manderville was solid as a rock defensively, simple as that. Completely useless offensively, couldn't hit worth crap, but he could play the puck as good as any fourth liner you'd find.
I liked him as a Penguin.
LOL yeah, I didn't know how to make a table like that until now.
I think Spaz may be looking at it the wrong way. Gainey simply wanted him to work for it.
My own loss of innocence occurred when.... well, let's not go there. At least until I figure out what the statue of limitations is on that sort of thing.
And you didn't throw it back? Mon dieu!
I was hoping to meet him outside and make him eat it.
Things have really turned around for Spaz the last year or so.
What does "mon dieu" mean?
My Lord, if i recall correctly
