They mentioned in the Blues game that Ovechkin is tied for 4th all time in PP goals.  I guessed Gretzky, Kurri, Brett Hull and Gordie Howe as the others (with very limited success).  #1 really tripped me out!

Holy cow!  An offensive stat Gretzky doesn't own.

Got 1 & 2, but my others were off - 6th and waaaaay off 17th.  Eh.

Is it not crazy that Gretz scored “only” 204 PP goals but 73 SH!  617 at ES.

I was just looking at that SH list.  Man, I would go to war with that list all day long and twice on Sundays.

Well, remember during his time in Edmonton he'd "kill" penalties with Kurri.  Kurri stayed in the zone and Gretzky hung out in the neutral zone.  So it was basically a 5 on 3.  But once Kurri or Fuhr or Huddy or Lowe chipped the puck out of the zone Wayne was away on a breakaway.

I can't decide which is more random, his inclusion or the Gretzky jersey.

I say it's the Gritty lunchbox.

Wow that's incredible. I knew Ovechkin was top-tier on the PP, but I wasn't aware that he is unquestionably the best PP scorer ever.

Edit: Didn't see Mario's PPG/Game ratio.

The Leafs' stars are incredible. 

And Barrie gave an early taste of why I was so high on him in my defenseman-points-predictions

I drafted him in all my fantasy leagues so far.

McDavid looks real rusty. that knee rehab must have been tougher than most were admitting.  I love watching him skate and hope there no lingering issues.

I can't believe a GM as good as Doug Wilson came into this season with Martin Jones still the starter in goal. With the rest of the roster they have, that's management malpractice.

Where's @Randall Flagg we gotta talk about how Vegas plays the game the right way and in such a stark contrast to the way the Sabres have been.

Dude last spring Vegas was playing some of the best hockey I've ever seen, in round 1. The way they played game 7 before that major call, and then the furious race to tie it before regulation ended, I was speechless. 

I think they're a serious cup contender just because of how seamlessly they play as one entity

I think what's interesting is no one on Vegas plays their own version of hockey. They're all playing the same way.

And they're all smart enough to know exactly what the others are thinking and doing. Stone, Patches, Karlsson, there are some seriously cerebral guys in huge roles on that team. I liked them before, but when they acquired Stone, it just went next level. He's been one of the top ~5 players in the world since he went to that team IMO, even though the early G/A/PTS didn't show it.

Edit: By "before" I just meant last season before the Stone trade. Not trying to pretend I didn't think Vegas would be terrible for years

Honestly, it’s a massive drag.

I still think they win the cup last year without that botched call. It only looks worse since.

I would have thought that #1 was common knowledge around here, at least among the 40+ year olds.
