I was checking out the 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! :)

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!!!

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 threw this trivia out there mainly because of the surprising placing that Gretzky is found at! Here's your top 5....

1. P. Esposito 118
2. J. Jagr 117
3. B. Hull 110
4. B. Shanahan 109
5. T. Selanne 107

6. G. Lafleur 97
7. M. Sundin 96
8. S. Yzerman 94
9. J. Nieuwendyk 93
10. S. Fedorov 93
14. W. Gretzky 91

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!

I'll go with Bossy, Trottier, Mario, C Lemieux.

Isn't Espo #1 in GWG?

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

I don't think gretzky is on there, i heard something on the radio or sportsnet or something that he isn't even in the top 5. i am tempted to google too!
Guest7609 Posted - 04/06/2013 : 02:15:27
Just googled, big surprises on there for sure...
Guest7609 Posted - 04/06/2013 : 02:14:53
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...
Alex116 Posted - 04/05/2013 : 14:11:13
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!!!
