Stammer is the only with with the speed and skill to pull it off and the line mates to do it in the near future

Nobody is beating Gretzky's record.

Hull is my favorite.

My log says you could beat the record if you tried real hard.

It'll be done again but it'll take some rule changes.

No one currently playing. I'm putting a statue of limitations on the 39 in 50 and saying it won't be broken in my lifetime (I'm 30). That being said, I can see some changes happening in the league as soon as Bettman steps down.

In today's NHL, no one is going to score that many goals anymore. But if there's someone to vote, Stamkos has the best chance.

As a kid I grew up watching the Islanders, Bossy was my favorite guy and I went to the 82 SCF games against Vancouver.

PS- that's "Mario Lemieux", you forgot the u.

I still think Tavares and Crosby have the ability to potentially do it. They'd need better linemates, but they have the skill. Stamkos is the most likely. Ovechkin a close second.

I just don't see it ever happening, ever.

If you have to have 50 "by" your 50th game, then isn't it technically automatically 50 in 49 games? Don't understand how the NHL wouldn't include you when you score your 50th goal in the 50th game (50in50).

Thanks. I updated the spelling mistake.

I think Ovie is the only one with a real shot. He's selfish enough with the puck and has a great helper in Bäckström to ease his job...

If you're playing in the teams 50th game and you score your 50th goal it counts and it has to be the teams 50th game.

I don't think it will ever be done again, but the best chance IMO is Stamkos.

Bossy is my favorite and Gretz' record of 50 in 39 will never be broken

If the Sedins had a winger like Iginla, all in their prime, I could see it.
