    Adjusted goals are the best way to compare eras. It's flawed, of course, but it's still fun to muse about such things.

    Hopefully, eventually Ovie will be the all time leader in adjusted and actual goals.

    agreed....it’s a great tool for era comparisons. Love it for that. Unquestionably.

    Beyond that though.....the all time leader in adjusted goals carries only slightly more weight than the all time expected goals leader lol...which is next to nothing next to actual goals. ;)

    You are like a dog on a bone. Let it go. ;)

    Anyway, I expect Ovie to continue to play 5 seasons after this year and at 40, 40, 30, 30 and 30, I expect him to have 900+ goals when all is said and done.

    Couple that with 700 ish assists and that's 1600+ points. Top 10 all time.

    I have great expectations for Ovie.

    I believe what I believe. I expect we won’t have to worry much about Ovy’s effort. ;)

    This was a fun read -- Greenberg tweeted out TEB's recap of Ovi's first game. Think I'm going to get, "It was just a shot. I must only shoot and I score two goals," as a tattoo.

    Two goals for Ovie tonight. Both at even strength which brings him to 452 even strength goals. That ties him for 7th all time with Messier.

    His second goal was the GWG. Ovie now has 115 GWGs for his career. Only 20 behind Jagr now.

    Ovie heating up. Goals in 5 straight games and 7 goals in 7 games.

    Also of note, Ovie’s +/- up to -3. It had been as low as -10.

    Ovie has been remodeling and has a new office. Pretty hard to move 6’3” 235 pounds out of there. :D

    Almost forgot. That was Ovie 147th career multi goal game which ties Gordie Howe for 4th all time.

    Le Mucks has 154, Brett Hull has 158 and Wayne has 189.

    Bobby Mac just mentioning Ovechkin specifically as one of the guys likely to not extend early because then he has to be protected for the ED....suggested other teams will be utilizing this strategy.

    Ovie scores #721 and gets an assist.

    8 goals in 9 games. Getting hotter and hotter...

    Scores his 16th and 17th of the season. Numbers #722 and #723 in his illustrious career.

    A 30 goal year is a very real possibility. Just amazing in a shortened season at age 35.

    Ovie now has 251 more career goals than the next Washington Capital. (Bondra 472 goals)

    He is now 38th all time in even strength scoring with 811 points.

    Counting playoffs, Ovie has now scored 792 NHL goals.
