    Who was essentially the greatest goal scorer??

    The Rocket shattered the career goal scoring record of Nels Stewart (324) and then went on to score an astonishing total of 544. Only its not so astonishing compared to a Dino Chickarello or Mike "P.A." Gartner. As well the magic 544 was broken by Gordie in 1965.

    Hull had astonishing goal scoring years unmatched at that time.

    99 and 66 were unstoppable in their own way.

    And dont forget the Boomer!

    I think I'd take 66 alone on a goalie; based on clips, the Rocket with defencemen to beat and the Rocket in the clutch.

    I agree............add Esposito and Yakushev for close-range goals in front of goalie with defencemen all over them.

    IMO its Lemieux and Bossy. They could score from anywhere on the ice, on any play (one timers, breakaway, off of the rush, ect.), and could score with any kind of shot.

    Not commenting on Bernie, but all those guys could do it on their own - except Bossy. He needed help. Maybe alone face off circle in needing a hot shot, maybe.

    As for today's guys, Kovalchuck and Nash have a chance to end up being mentioned with these guys. I can see Ovechkin scoring a ton of goals as well, the type of player with 10-15 more goals than assists each year.

    Yakushev shouldn't be anywhere near this line... good player, but he really was from most accounts more of a one tourney wonder the same way that Henderson was

    This is easy.

    I think Lemieux scores the most goals but if I only get one guy, I'll take Wayne. For everytime he doesn't score, one of his wongers will score twice.

    Last time I checked, my team wins.

    We're not talking about their wongers scoring.

    Yeah, no wongers.

    Ps. no cups last 12 years of 19 year career tells you something about winning style of play.

    Rocket scored a goal with a 200 lbs defenseman, Earl Seibert, sitting on his shoulders. He went in and faked the goalie, Harry Lumley, out and lifted the puck into the far corner of the net with one free hand.

    Your opinion for what it's worth I disagree with.

    No kidding. We're talking about the best players from the blueline in...

    Last time I checked, you are a part of a team and that team does from time to time participate from the blue line in too.

    The combination of passing and scoring that Wayne brings to the plate has inspired me to pick him..

    Now don't you and Chooch have a Lemieux poster to group hug or something..?

    Oh, and sorry... Maybe next time I'll spell check my post. :shakehead

    These are the first words in this thread. No one mentioned passing ability except you.

    It was a joke, take it easy.

    I have to disagree with Benton on this too. He's also in the IIHF Hall of Fame, had 339 goals in 568 Soviet League games, and his goals per game with the soviet team is .01% lower that Kharlamovs. The Summit Series was where Yakushev had his best games but he wasn't a one hit wonder like Henderson.

    And Earl Seibert was one of the greatest defenseman of his era.
