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.
