I was checking out the nhl.com website, and saw the following quote by Jagr, which he made after scoring a goal (the game winning goal) in his first game with the Bruins.

"I knew [the pass] was coming. They always said, 'You've got to drive to the net,' and now I understand why they were saying that, and I never really drive to the net, now I know why. If I knew it when I was 20, I would have 100 more goals by now." Jaromir Jagr

It's possible he was being facetious, but I think he was at least half serious. Far be it for me to criticize a guy who sits in 8th place in career goals (regular season), with 680 goals in 1,381 games, but that's a heckuva quote! :)

Funny stuff indeed!

Did you happen to see the stat where he is 1 GWG behind the leader for NHL Career Game Winning Goals??? Any idea who the leader might be? Anyone? A little trivia this Friday afternoon. Make it more interesting and name the other 4 in the top 5. NO GOOGLING!!!

Geez, this really depends on when they started keeping track of GWG stats, doesnt it...Am I allowed to google that, Alex?

If I had to guess instead of google, I'd say the top five are Gretzky, Jagr, Hull, Messier and Yzerman...probably way off...

Isn't Espo #1 in GWG?

I think Brett Hull was up there too. Not a clue about the rest though.

Great trivia, Alex. Had to look this up myself...

Found something a little more fun than straight googling the answer, as well, if anyone's interested...not quiiiite current, but pretty close :) Happy Guessing!

2. J. Jagr 117

4. B. Shanahan 109

Wow, that's the craziest hockey list I've seen yet. Not at all how I expected it to look.

You can't be that surprised Statman Of course we would think we'd see Howe and Gretzky on there, being that they are the only two 800+ goal scorers. But that should be the only surprise. All of the guys on this list are 600/700+ goal scorers.

Given that there are probably only 15 to 20 guys in history that have scored over 600 goals you should be able to take a reasonable stab at this. Now I'm not saying that I could have guessed the exact list but I wouldn't think it's the "craziest list" I've ever seen.

I think the crazy part is where Gretzky places. With the sheer number of goals he's scored, one would think he'd be top 5. Just from the math, if nothing else!!!
