    So we're going to get a rematch of the Cup final tonight when Ovechkin takes on Vegas. Ovechkin still doesn't have a regular season goal against Vegas and if he manages to score he'll have at least a goal against all the other 30 teams in the League.

    But what would be even more impressive is the fact that Ovechkin would tie the late great Bobby Hull in career goals with 610. If Ovechkin scores he would also do it in 57 regular season games less than Bobby Hull did, which would be a hard pill to swollow for most on the history board. This would pretty much end any discussion of Bobby Hull being a better all time player and goal scorer than Ovechkin.

    And seeing as Ovechkin has been on fire to start the season and Vegas has been letting in goals left and right, there's a very good chance we're going to see Ovechkin have another historic night tonight!

    Bobby Hull is still alive but yes impressive none the less !

    Also even more impressive since ovechkin already scored against all teams before the expansion so he techically already beat it plus more teams than bobby had to do it against

    Why do we have to ensure that one is better than the other? Both respectively played at different times, both probably the best goal scorers of their generation so who cares?

    Ovi > Bobby Hull. Ovi is the greatest goal scorer of any generation and one we clearly haven't appreciated enough in his career.

    @Mulletman I'm kind of tired of your disrespect towards great retired players by calling them "late" in your threads. I know it's becoem a meme like your posts but seriously, WTF?

    First thing I did after reading the OP was head over to Wikipedia to see if I had somehow missed the news that Bobby Hull was dead.

    All I saw was the thread title and I knew it was Mulletman.

    I spend too much time on this forum.

    What a load of poppycock.

    Ovechkin potentially having more goals then Hull in no way in the world of reality puts his incomplete style ahead of Hull as a player. Wow.

    Yes it does. Ovechkin is better at everything and is the player you would want on your team today if you wanted to maximize your chance at winning a hockey game. That is a fact. Move along.
