    I know i should of posted this in the Crosby Thread but since he hasn't chipped a nail this time i should be ok (hopefully).

    Here's an article about some records that crosby may be able to break (Including Mike Bossy).

    Had he not missed a month due to the WJC, he would be on pace to smash the records.

    Those records were also set when scoring was way up in the Q, too. Teams were scoring about 5 goals a game compared with 3.5 this year.

    If he kicks it up a notch those records COULD be attained.

    Why was Bossy not on the WJC team back then? Or didn't they hold the tourament back then?

    Altough the article is a good read it left out a few details that I bothered checking up. Also 3 more games were played since that article was written. So here's a quick summary of what the article says plus some added stuff :

    16 years old records in the Q :
    Normand Dupont 125 pts in 70 games (1973-1974)
    Mike Bossy 70 goals in 68 games (1973-1974)
    Denis Savard 79 assists in 72 games (1977-1978)

    Crosby is scoring at 1.00 goal/game;1.21 assist/game;2.21pts/game

    He has 43 goals;52 assists;95 pts in 43 games

    He's on pace to finish the season at 59 goals;71assists;130pts in 59 games (maximum number of games possible if he stays healthy or isn't suspended)

    At his current pace he would have got 69 goals;83assists;152pts in 69 games if he had not gone to the WJC (he missed one game just before he left for the WJC due to a small injury). He would have broken both Savard's and Dupont's assists and points records while being 1 goal short of tying one of the greatest goal scorer of all time.

    Right now I think Bossy's goal scoring record is out of reach but Savard's and Dupont's records are definately reachable and beatable.

    Just awesome...

    Excepts for Dupont, when you look at Bossy and Savard's career, it's a lot promising for this kid

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY/S MIKE and DENIS

    Except Bossy scored some of these goals as a 17 year old (born jan 22/57) and Savard must have had a lot of these assists as a 17 year old (born Feb 4/61, HAPPY BIRTHDAY) Sid will turn 16 and 1/2 this week!

    I know these are only numbers but nobody will compare Sid next season 04/05 to these guys in their "16 year old season" even though that would be closer (very, very slightly agewise)


    Have to sign this one
    VERY BIASED CROSBYFAN

    Canada sent the previous year's Memorial Cup Champions back then, not an all star team like they do now.

    Yeap! Canada began to form an All Star Team around 1982 if not mistaken.
