I'm trying to figure out career team guys out there.

Al Macinnis?

If thats not true, I'm going to say that its a trick question and the last answer is still Wayne Gretzky haha


No MacInnis. You're right :P It is Gretzky with the Oilers.

1 - Ray Bourque (Boston - 1,111 assists)
2 - Wayne Gretzky (Edmonton - 1,086 assists)
3 - Steve Yzerman (Detroit - 1,063 assists)
4 - Mario Lemiuex (Pittsburgh - 1,033 assists)
5 - Gordie Howe (Detroit - 1,023 assists)

Haha! I figured it was a trick question for a second. You said that its not just overall (aka Gretz) so I didn't think about it for awhile. Good question.

Which franchise has the most shootout wins ever? Which franchise has the least? (Bonus if you can give the number)

I'm gonna go with Detroit for the most. Hmm...maybe Minnesota for the least?

Unfortunately you are incorrect on both counts. Minnesota is actually 10th with 42 wins and Detroit is 16th with 36 wins. Ironically, both the Wild and Red Wings are .500 in shootouts.

Hint: There are actually two teams with the fewest, but one of them, Carolina, has ten less shootouts played, so I am looking for the other one.

Second Hint: Both are playoff teams this season.

Hmm, that's surprising. Rangers for the most wins? Maybe...say the Predators for the least? I really have no idea...

Tough question that no one will really get... Only guesses. Incorrect on both.

Most wins: New Jersey Devils with 54 wins
Fewest: Philadelphia Flyers with 23 wins

Because I know you are wondering... Vancouver ranks 22nd in all-time shootout wins with 34.

This is more of an inquiry than a question...

...In all 8 series in this year's quarterfinals, no home team went up 2-0 after the first two games. Has that ever happened before? Does it not seem like something that has never happened, or happened very few times?Upon further review... According to Jeff Patterson, it happened in 2010, so its not that rare. Wow.

According to someone who replied to Jeff Patterson's reply to my tweet, this is only the second time since the 1 v 8 format started, the other time being 2010.

Hooray another question for all you hockey geniuses!

What is the highest +/- any Canuck has ever had in one playoff year? (This happened with two players, name them and how much +/- they had).

We are so consumed by the playoffs? Sorry man I was away from my computer for a few days.

It has to be during one of the three cup runs, eh?

- Trevor Linden in the '94 run, no idea on the number though
- Alex Burrows last year

Nope, nice try! Hint - Both players were from the '94 Playoff run.

Bure is a bit further down. Geoff Courtnall is tied for 3rd. Two guys are ahead of him. Quite random players actually.

I'm not going to lie, I have now googled it. Wow. No one will ever get that!

I have a somewhat hockey related question, the answer is not in the NHL, but hey, mixing it up a bit. As the Phoenix Coyotes could be the next answer to this question.

Who is the last team in professional sports team to win the league playoff championship and relocate to a different city the next season?

Hints: Relocated to CDN city from US city. Other hint: disgrace.

For those who wanted to know the answer to mine: Nathan LaFayette and Bret Hedican. They both had +13 in the 1994 Cup run.

I was gonna say Colorado after moving from Quebec, but I had the question backwards. Hmm... so the answer isn't in the NHL?

I do believe it was the Baltimore Stallions of the CFL, I think Matt Sekeres(sp?) was talking about this on the team 1040.

Boom, yep. Haha was wondering if anyone was listening as well. Only US team to win the Grey Cup.

Anyways, back to hockey trivia?

Hmm good question. The earliest one I can think of in the NHL is Nikolai Khabibulin, but I don't feel like it can be him...since he started in the mid 90's.

That was my first impression as well, but I think maybe Mikhail Shtalenkov may have been a year or two ahead of Khabby...
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I'm thinking it might have been Trefilov (sp?). I remember him playing for the Flames somewhere around the early '90s.

Gentlemen, we have a winner. Sergei Mylnikov played ten games for the Quebec Nordiques in 1989. Posting a steller 1-7-2 record and a sterling 4.96 GAA.

Here's a bit of an "off the beaten path" one:

What former NHL great has a brother who was once the property of the BC Lions? (This should be an easy one)
