I think we all know Laine is a good player, but how good exactly? I was thinking I would start a new thread open for anyone to comment, because there is a lot commotion going on in the Jets thread and the mods are over-worked and probably quite irritated already. I though this might ease everyones' lives and allow non-Jets fans to also comment. The reason I ask the question in the thread is this: 2015-16 Liiga Rookie of the Year. 2015-16 Liiga Rookie Goals Leader. 2015-16 Liiga Rookie Points Leader. 2015-16 Liiga Playoff MVP and Champion. 2015-16 Liiga Playoff Goals Leader. 2015-16 Liiga Record Setter for Most Playoff Goals By a Rookie. 2016 World Junior All Star Team. 2016 World Junior Gold Medal. 2016 World Junior Goals Leader. 2015 U-18 All Star Team. 2015 U-18 Silver Medal. 2015 U-18 Goals Leader. 2016 World Championship MVP. 2016 World Championship Silver Medal. 2016 World Championship All-Star Team. 2016 World Championship, IIHF Directorate Award for Best Forward. 2016 World Championship, Award for Top 3 Player on Team. 2016 World Championship Goals Leader. 2016 World Championship Record Setter for Most Goals by a Player in First Year of NHL Draft Eligibility. 2016 World Championship Record Setter for Most Points by a Player in First Year of NHL Draft Eligibility. Highest Point Total by a U-18 Player at a World Championship Tournament (Previous record doubled). Youngest player ever to score three hat tricks in the NHL Fastest 18 Year-old to achieve 30 goals in the NHL (era-adjusted) Led the league in PP goals as a U20 player (only player to reach 20 PP goals in 17-18 season) 3rd European teenager ever to reach 100 career points in the NHL Longest point streak by a teenager in NHL history at 14 games Scored 40 goals in less ice-time than anyone in the NHL since ice-time has been recorded (44 Goals averaging 16:29 TOI) You think that's it? Nope, check this out (from user jepjepjoo, the blower of minds): Last 25 years rookie + sophomore goal scoring (at any age): 1. Ovechkin 98 goals (3505mins TOI, 998mins PPTOI) 2.Laine 80 goals (2659mins TOI, 448 PPTOI) 2.Malkin 80 goals (3243mins TOI, 861mins PPTOI) 4.Crosby 74 goals (3270mins TOI, 920mins PPTOI) There are no ice time records for the 80's, but Gretzky still averaged 21:04 in his last season. If he averaged the same in his first 2 nhl season that would put him at 3350 mins and 31:36 per goal while Laine is at 33:14. Gretzky would have to average 22:10 TOI per game to place him right behind Laine at 33:15. Highly likely he averaged more than 22:10 per game. Bossy on the other hand would have to play a whopping 26:31 per game to place him behind Laine with 33:15 per goal. 1. Laine 33:14 2. Ovechkin 35:46 (122.8% more PPtoi than Laine) 3. Malkin 40:32 (92.2%) 4. Crosby 44:11 (105.4%) Selänne would have to play more than 24:52 for him to be behind Laine. My best guess is: 1.Bossy 2.Selänne 3.Laine I think that's pretty incredible from a teenager. Close to impossible.
