    I remember when everyone said Ovy would be hurt at least once a year, maybe more, because he plays reckless. So far, there is nothing to really support your theory on Hall.

    Other than that, I understand the shock appeal of putting guys that never played a game in the NHL on the list, but to realistically say a guy like Strome has more of a chance than Nash, Perry, Hall, etc. is a little overboard IMO. Nash already has 4/10 seasons in a row under his belt and just getting into his prime years.

    It's definitely playing the potential card big time in selecting these guys.

    Nash definitely has a legitimate shot and is a big time contender to join the exclusive 10 x 30 club. However, there is the reasonable possibility that none of the names mentioned achieve this feat. Keep in mind some of the all time hockey great goal scorers that did not get there - Brett Hull just to mention one.

    It's crazy to think that Iggy was a mere 3 goals away from it being 12 years in a row.

    Except that Hall, a 6'0 180-190 pounder plays like he's 6'2, 230 pounds. Ovechkin actually is 6'2, 230 pounds.

    One freak injury that doesn't really relate to his game doesn't make him prone for future injury.

    And for the record:
    Hall is 6'1'' (185 cm) 195 lbs
    Ovechkin is 6'2'' (188 cm) 233 lbs

    Give the 19 year old some time to fill out :).

    I'll throw Kessel into the mix. Already on pace to have three years of 30 goals, after this year.

    If he can put up two years of 30 goals with Tyler Bozak as his centre, he'll definitely have a shot if the Leafs get a #1 centre.

    I didn't say he was injury prone, I said he's more likely to get injured than AO given they play a similar style, but one guy is a lot bigger than the people he's running into

    Agreed:

    I limited it to 5 honorable mentions but Kessel deserves mentioning.

    Dany Heatley should be in the mix given his natural scoring ability, but just a gut feeling his streak gets derailed at some point.

    Parise would have had he not gotten hurt this year.. this year would have already been 5 straight.

    This is why the 10 x 30 club is so incredible, IMO. You can't sustain any real significant injuries over that span (unless you're Crosby).

    If Eric Staal had buried an empty net in the second to last game last season, he would be on pace to have his 6th season this year.

    So sad that he isn't going to get it. :cry:

    Kessel for sure should be considered.

    Bobby Ryan could do it barring injury.

    As long as St Louis doesnt retire Stamkos could.

    Alexander Semin, Matt Duchene, James Neal (with Crosby for 10 years), are just some names that come to mind.

    I agree, size is definitely the difference here. Ovechkin has it and is big and strong enough to absorb hits and even sometimes initiate contact while he is carrying the puck. Hall does not, but he does try to play physical and it gets him in trouble. Here are three examples: the first where he challenges another opponent (Hamonic) with his body, the second and third where he misjudges the defender and gets destroyed. I've NEVER seen Ovie get handled like this.

    Nash would have had 7 in a row already if he had 3 more goals in 06-07. Pretty crazy.

    Parise would have had he not gotten hurt this year.. this year would have already been 5 straight.

    This is the first name that came to my head, and I could only hope that he still has a chance, he'll only be 27 at the beginning of next season.

    Jeff Skinner is my next guess!

    Goes to show how tough an achievement this is to complete. One hiccup along the road and one's in tough to pull it off.

    Stamkos, Ryan, Nash,, and 6 more goals by the end of the season, Kovalchuk will get his 8th season in a row.

    St.louis is an amazing playmaker, and will be the first lightning member have his number retired. Stamkos wont need St.louis to nail 30 goals a season however, the kid has an assload of talent.

    True, but there is a very good chance Hall is playing in the 210 range within a year or 2, he has a massive frame with the ability to fill out and be very strong.
    He's 194 as a 19 year old rookie, so he just needs to fill out, work out really hard over the next couple summers, and he will be ready to play his game without fear by 21 at the latest IMO.

    The way I see it, he hasn't got hurt yet in all of junior or in the NHL because of his reckless play, so the fact he will get much stronger will only help and hopefully it won't affect his career at all.
