    Stanley Cup: 1991, 1992

    From 1995-2001, Jaromir Jagr scored 760 points - 24% more than the second highest scorer over those years! 498 of those points came at even strength, 32% more than the second highest scorer over this time.

    Over the span of his NHL career (1990-91 to 2007-08), Jagr scored 1599 points, 9% more than the second highest total over this time. 1051 of those points came at even strength, 22% more than the second highest total over this time.

    Over the span of his NHL career (1990 to 2007-08), Jagr was +275, the highest total of any forward over that time. This despite the fact that with Jagr off the ice, his teams were slightly below average (0.97 GF/GA ratio at even strength).

    Clutch goal scorer - 112 GWG (2nd all-time) and 15 overtime goals (t-1st all-time).

    Outside the NHL

    1998 Olympic Gold Medal
    2005 World Championship Gold Medal and Tournament All-Star (note: this was during the lockout, where the NHL playoffs did not prevent any players from participating)
    2010 World Championship Gold Medal
    Golden Hockey Stick (an award given to the top Czech ice hockey player): 1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

    In 1989-90, Jagr played for HC Kladno at the age of 17. He finished 8th in goals, 5th in assists, and 7th in points in Czechoslovakia. Jagr returned to Kladno during the 1994 and 2004-05 lockouts. In 1994, he scored 22 points in 11 games, and in 2004 he scored 28 points in 17 games. Jagr also played for Avangard Omsk during the 2004-05 lockout, and led them to the IIHF European Champions Cup.

    Quotes from the SI Vault over Jagr's career

    Adjusted Stats

    Jaromir Jagr was arguably as good a scorer as Mario Lemieux at even strength.

    Adjusted Even Strength Points per season during prime (First 10 modern forwards drafted)
    The adjustment is to a league scoring level of 200 even strength goals per team per season. The power play adjusted points are also included - those are adjusted to a league scoring level of 70 power play goals per team per season, and to a league-average number of power play opportunities.

    Lemieux was a much better scorer on the power play and shorthanded. And his numbers would have been better if he had been healthy more often. But at even strength, Jagr was just as productive during their respective primes.

    Note that other players in this list are not all directly comparable to Jagr, some had more defensive roles and contributions. This list should not be taken as a definitive ranking of even strength performance.

    - In 1916, Coutu won the U.S.A. Senior championship with the Michigan Soo Indians
    - On November 24th, 1916, Coutu signed as a free agent by Montreal Canadiens in the National Hockey Association
    - In 1919, Coutu alongside Joe Hall, Edouard Lalonde, Jack McDonald and manager George Kennedy contracted influenza and were hospitalized. Teammate Joe Hall died during Game 5 and the Stanley Cup finals was cancelled.
    - On November 27th, 1920, Coutu was loaned to the Hamilton Tigers by the Montreal Canadiens as part of trade of Jack McDonald, Harry Mummery and Dave Ritchie for Jack Coughlin, Goldie Prodgers and Joe Matte
    - On January 12nd 1924,Coutu missed seven games due to a broken wrist suffered in a game against the Toronto St. Patricks
    - On January 19th 1926, he was suspended one game and fined 100$ by theNHL for tripping referee Jerry Laflamme against the Ottawa Senators
    - At the end of Game 4 of the 1927 Stanley Cup, Coutu started a bench-clearing brawl, apparently at the request of coach Art Ross, by assaulting referee Jerry Laflamme and tackling referee Billy Bell. As a result, he was expelled from the NHL for life. On October 8th, 1929, the suspension was lifted so that Coutu could play in the minor leagues. He never played in the NHL again, although he was reinstated in 1932–33 at the insistence of Leo Dandurand
    - During the 1933-34 season, Coutu played one game in goal for the Providence Reds in the Canadian American Hockey League, allowing 12 goals
    - Coutu was a longtime Minor Pro Coach and referee after his playing days

    -Several hockey history books, including The Hockey News "Habs Heroes" by Ken Campbell incorrectly attribute his name to a photograph of teammate Louis Berlinguette. He and his family pronounced their name "Koochee", which was sometimes confused with "Couture".

    -Ms. Aird Stuart, the sister of Coutu's wife, Gertrude Aird, was the mother of Mary Morenz and grandmother of Marlene Geoffrion, daughter of Howie Morenz and widow of Bernie Geoffrion.

    -Howie Morenz played with Coutu on the Canadiens.-wikipedia



    In the spring of 1924, the Canadiens made their way back into contention for the Stanley Cup. With Georges Vézina in nets and Couture creating mayhem on the blue line, Montreal was almost unimpeded in their efforts.

    We can name undrafted players/coaches in the bio thread, that's actually the reason we have it, so you can edit the names from Yzerman's bio back.

    Yes, that too.

    That's not actually the reason we have it, but it's a nice side benefit that it's an undrafted player "safe zone" as well.

After all, which matters to you more when considering who would win in a hypothetical match-up between two stars- whether Player A scored 35 points at age 40, or whether he had 135 at age 25? When compared at their peak, Syl Apps looks very, very good against three players that are consistently drafted ahead of him- Steve Yzerman, Mark Messier and Bobby Clarke.

    Apps


    vs.

    Yzerman


    Comments: Yzerman is the perfect example of a player whose longevity is often cited as a plus- which it is. But Yzerman was an unusual player for a Top 50 of all-time; he began his career as a relatively one-dimensional offensive superstar, and evolved later into a two-way presence. But as this study shows, even at his very best one-way peak, Yzerman was only clearly a better goal-scorer than Apps- who both was a better playmaker and a better overall point producer.

    vs.

    Messier


    Comments: Obviously, there are other factors in play that lead to Messier cracking the top 30. But as the following quotes will indicate, Apps was both noted for his exemplary leadership and had no trouble leading his teams to Stanley Cups. So how do they stack up in regular season peak production? Very closely. Apps was clearly the better goal-scorer, and while Messier has more 5th place finishes, they're about equal in terms of 2nd and 3rds- Messier one fewer second place and one more third in each category.

    vs.

    Clarke


    Perhaps the most surprising discovery in this study was the amazing similarity offensively between Apps and Bobby Clarke. Both led the league in assists twice, and both were 2nd in points at least twice. Clarke won two Stanley Cups, Apps three. So why does Clarke continually go so much higher? Defensive play is the major reason- while Clarke is generally considered the best "two-way" player in the history of the game, is that really worth 20+ spots in the ATD? If it can be proven that Apps was at least above-average defensively, should the difference not be 10 or even 5 spots in an overall context?

    Quotes

    As said, intangibles are what push players like Messier, Yzerman and Clarke above Apps- two of them due to incredible leadership, and in Clarke's case, defense. Leadership is the easiest area to make a case for Apps:

    "He was an inspirational leader who had the talent of setting his teammates on fire with his own all-out play"- Regina Leader-Post, 1949

    "Inspired by the return of their mighty captain, Syl Apps, Toronto over- whelmed the Boston Bruins, 7 to 2, at Maple Leaf Gardens"- New York Times

    ''He represents what pro athletes should be. He was the Jean Beliveau of English Canada.'' - Former Leaf Jim Dorey

    "His leadership skills were never more evident than when he led the Leafs back from a three-game-to-none deficit against Detroit."- Top 100 Maple Leafs of All-Time

    "Syl's great play-making and leadership wasn't the only things the Leafs lacked."- Ottawa Citizen

    (credit to EagleBelfour for many of the above)

    Of course, the proof is in the pudding; Apps was captain in Toronto for three Stanley Cups, including the aforementioned comeback from three games down.

    Defensively is another matter. No in the ATD has yet to produce much evidence that he was as effective or diligent in his end as he was in the other, this despite being perhaps the fastest skater in hockey and its most intelligent. In addition, due to the fact he took fewer penalties than most any other player, Apps would have been available during most every PK.

    I figured the best source for research would be the most obvious- The Globe and Mail. As a Toronto paper, their write-ups of Leafs games were often the longest and most detailed.

    Before the archive seemingly crashed for the day, I did find this:

    When asked about Bobby Orr's infamous flying goal, Apps was able to perfectly elucidate the defensive miscues that led up to it, and there are numerous G&M references about him stealing pucks from opposing players or jumping on give-aways. It makes me wonder; was Apps a better version of a modern-day Russian center? Without ice-time- or even shorthanded goals- it's impossible to know. However, that modern player I'm referring to is currently 11th on his team in SH TOI despite being generally known as a two-way ace. Would Apps have had less in T.O.? I doubt it- it's never been said that he was bad defensively. If anyone has a source that says otherwise, I'd love to see it. Hopefully we can clear that up this ATD.

    - For what it's worth, Ultimate Hockey award Cleghorn with two retro Norris trophies. (Keep in mind the Norris Trophy was inaugurated in 1954, so these are just based on stats/accolades)

    Cleghorn and xxxxx xxxxx were traded to the Bruins in the 1925-1926 season, and got rowdy with Eddie Shore in practice, leading him to get repairs on his ear. But over time they became close, and Cleghorn acted as a mentor/tutor the young phenom Shore as he constantly improved into a perennial all-star defenseman.

    1st (1938)*, 4th (1932), 5th (1945), 6th (1933, 1936), 7th (1944)

    *3rd among all players

    From 1934-1945, Seibert was 3rd among defensemen in points, with 86% of 1st place and 99% of 2nd place (7th in points per game among players who played 100 or more games, 76% of 1st place and 81% of 2nd place).

    During Seibert's entire playoff career (1932-1945), Seibert was 3rd in playoff points among defensemen, with 59% of 1st place. In terms of points per game, he had only 48% of Butch Bouchard, but he compares much better with Babe Pratt (63%) and Flash Hollett (67%), but he was definitely much better all around than both of those guys. He compared very favorably to everyone else during this period, including Eddie Shore (76%), Wally Stanowski (83%), and King Clancy (94%). Clearly he was quite a good playoff performer, despite playing largely for miserable teams.

    - ''I'm running them into the boards and banging them around one minute and because we win the Stanley Cup, that's going to change? I don't really like them anyway. Why should I shake their hands?'' - Doug Harvey, refusing to shake hand with the Boston Bruins after the 1953 Stanley Cup Final

    - ''I think almost every team had a tough fella you had to be careful of. Not necessarily for fighting, but for bodychecking. Pierre Pilote. Fernie Flaman. Leo Boivin. Bobby Baun. Doug Harvey in Montreal. - Andy Bathgate on the toughest competitor in his time

    - ''And of course Harvey, we always thought that without Harvey on that team we could beat Montreal because he really was controlling the puck back on that blueline.

    - ''All I know is that the son of a gun came out of nowhere to become the biggest thorn in the side of the Leafs in our glory days.

    Biography & Personal Life:

    Douglas Norman Harvey was born in Montreal's Notre Dame de Grace neighbourhood on December 19, 1924. A natural athlete from the time of his youth, Doug began playing organized hockey at the age of 13. First, as a goaltender: put there because of his diminutive size. He disliked being stuck in goal, so he was moved to centre. It was only later that he would be placed on defence, a position he would later revolutionize.

    While Harvey excelled at hockey, many will argue that as great as he was on the ice, he was even better on the baseball diamond and the gridiron playing football. In 1942-43, as a member of the Montreal Navy, Harvey was recognize as the most valuable player in the Quebec Rugby Football Union. That squad won football's Grey Cup in 1944, although without their star halfback, Harvey, who was serving his country during the Second World War.

    During World War II, Harvey was a gunner for a merchant ship in the north Atlantic. Upon his return from the war, Harvey served in the Navy. In the 1944-45 season, Harvey played hockey at the same time with the National Defence League's Donnaconas and also played football with the Montreal Hornets, the predecessor of the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.

    In 1945-46, Doug graduated to the Royals' senior team, and helped the team win the Quebec Senior Hockey League championship. The next year, the Royals went all the way and collected the Allan Cup as Canada's premier senior hockey team. The same year, Doug also played semi-pro baseball with the Ottawa Nationals of the Class 'C' Border League. Harvey, a third baseman, missed much of the end of his baseball season as it took place at the same time as the Montreal Canadiens' training camp.

    In his first training camp with the Canadiens, Harvey made quite an impression with his new club. The Montreal Gazette had this to say on the young defenseman: ''Doug Harvey can skate with the best of them, is big enough to horse around with any of those NHL hard guys, handles his stick expertly and has a head on his shoulders.''

    Doug Harvey made the Montreal Canadiens, replacing Frank Eddolls, who had been traded to the New York Rangers. Doug was even given Eddolls' number 2 to wear with the Habs. Harvey joined a defence corps that included Butch Bouchard, Glen Harmon, Roger Leger and Ken Reardon. It took Doug a few seasons to assert himself as one of the league's premier defencemen, but by 1951-52, he was selected to the NHL's First All-Star Team for the first of ten times.

    With Montreal, his skating ability and puck control skills combined with his shot blocking prowess and toughness were unequalled. Unlike modern defenceman of the like of Niklas Lidstrom and Bobby Orr, Harvey could dominate the game physically as well as with finesse serving up crunching body checks and open ice hits to the opposition when the situation dictated it.

    At the offseason of 1956, Ted Lindsay and Doug Harvey formed the first player’s union to fight for player’s rights. The league at that time was infamous in its disrespect for even the stars of the time. Both were furious that the owners had not matched the 900.00$ per year pension contributions as promised. The contribution by the owners came from All-Star Game tickets and a surcharge on playoff tickets, and not from their own pockets. Harvey and Lindsay, who had fought bloodied battles on the ice, joined forces to organize the players: ''We figured we could do better by the pension plans if we had an association and our own legal advisors,'' explained Harvey. Surprisingly, every players but one kicked in the 100.00$ necessary and the union was started. In 1957, Jimmy Thomson, the veteran defenceman and representative of the Toronto Maple Leafs, was the first to get traded for his involvement in the players union. A couple of years later, both Ted Lindsay and Doug Harvey, all-star players of their respective teams, got traded: all three, for little return. By 1960, the owners succeeded to scuttle the first attempt to form an union.

    While the Montreal Canadiens organization argued that Harvey's trade was motivated by his age and flagging skill-set, Doug was never convinced. "It had to do with union activities," he stated firmly. "I was a First Team All-Star and won the Norris that year. You don't give away a player like that!" It would take another decade before the players finally gain control of their association.

    Harvey then played two season with the New York Rangers. In 1961-62, he was named player-coach and with a 26-32-12 records, was able to squeeze his team into a playoff spot. This was the first time since 1958 and the last time in the Original Six era that the New York Rangers were able to obtain a playoff spot. Moreover, for his effort on the ice, he received his seventh and last James Norris trophy. The 1962-63 season was far less memorable for Harvey and the Rangers. In the fall of 1962, Harvey worked out an arrangement with the management where he could go home between games and didn't even have to practice. The Rangers finished 21 points out of a playoff spot and Harvey was left unprotected by the team.

    It was the beginning of a tumultuous time for Doug. In 1963, Harvey signed with the Quebec Aces of the American Hockey League, where he spent two seasons. In 1965-66, Doug signed as a free agent with the AHL's Baltimore Clippers. Just before Christmas of 1966, he was traded to Providence of the AHL, but exercised a clause in his contract that allowed him to become a free agent if he was traded by the Clippers. In doing so, Harvey joined the Pittsburgh Hornets, the AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings. During that 1966-67 season, he found himself back in the NHL for 2 games with the Detroit Red Wings.

    During the summer of 1967, the newly-formed St. Louis Blues hired Doug to coach their affiliate franchise in Kansas City. Harvey was once again a playing-coach, and the team made the playoffs. But once they were eliminated, the parent Blues called up several players for their playoff run, including Gary Veneruzzo, Don McKenney and Doug Harvey. He also played the entire 1968-69 season with the Blues, but then, at the age of 44, retired from professional hockey.

    During his hockey career and after, Doug Harvey was a troubling personality. He drove his teammates and coaches crazy with his tardiness, stubbornness and often berating ways. Years later, it would be determined Harvey was suffering from bipolar disorder, a manic-depressive disease. Back then, not much was known about the illness. During his playing days with the Montreal Canadiens, Harvey was a dedicated team player, but as the years passed, it was becoming harder and harder to put up with his heavy drinking.

    Decades after his retirement, hard-living had taken its toll on Doug. In the mid-80's, Ronald Corey, who was at the time the president of the Canadiens, was informed of Doug's personal situation and hired him as a part-time scout. Indeed, one of hockey's greatest heroes was living in a railway car, a mobile living unit once used by prime minister John Diefenbaker, at an Ottawa-area race track drinking his life away. ''I go to those games anyway, and I'm sure I can help,'' later said Harvey, on his new job.

    Unfortunately he would spend much of his last few years battling alcohol and mental illness. In 1988, Harvey was diagnosed with liver disease. ''It was just such a strange thing for us to see our father needy,'' admitted Darlene Petsche, the oldest of Doug's daughters. ''All his life he'd been a big, strong, athletic guy who could do anything.'' During the last weeks of his life, when asked about his life, he didn't regret a thing: ''If I had to do it over again,'' he said, ''I wouldn't have changed a thing.''

    On December 26, 1989, reduced to a shell of his former robust self, Doug Harvey died of cirrhosis of the liver in Montreal General Hospital. He had stopped drinking three years before he passed away, but at that point it was too late. He had just celebrated his 65th birthday. If only Harvey had receive some help, perhaps he could of lived much longer. But, as Jean Beliveau pointed out, there is little that could of been done since Harvey didn't admit to needing help. Maurice Richard, a teammate and also a good friend of Harvey, said after Harvey's death: ''Everyone tried to put him on the right path, but there was nothing to be done.''

    Although his behaviour at time was eccentric and erratic, Harvey was a beloved character by both his family and his teammate. Fans will always remember Harvey not for his latter years, but rather as one of the greatest defencemen of all-time.
