zombieksa Posted March 5, 2015 Share Posted March 5, 2015 So with Henrik recently hitting the 900pt mark I have spent some time looking through career numbers and seeing who is closing in on that 1,000 milestone. Patrick Marleau is undoubtedly going to be the next player to amass that total next with only 21 points to go. Beyond that I wanted to see who you thought was going to reach that mark next and in what order. So here is a list of the next 10 forwards in career scoring that are currently playing in the NHL (sorry Heatly), age, points/remaining, and years remaining on their current contracts. I am curious what order you think they reach that milestone. If you don't think they reach it please state that. Vincent Lecavelier(34) - 17 points this season(928) - 72 points remaining - 3 years remaining Henrik Sedin (34) - 59 points (901) - 99 points remaining - 3 years remaining Brad Richards (34) - 32 points(899) - 101 points remaining - UFA Shane Doan (38) - 30 points (892) - 108 points remaining - 1 year remaining Alex Ovechkin (29) - 67 points (881) - 119 points remaining - 6 years remaining Daniel Sedin (34) - 56 points (861) - 139 points remaining - 3 years remaining Pavel Datsyuk(36) - 52 points(856) - 144 points remaining - 2 years remaining Sydney Crosby (27) - 64points(833) - 167 points remaining - 7 years remaining Alex Tanguay(35) - 40 points(813) - 187 points remaining - 1 year remaining Henrik Zetterberg(34) 51pints(771) - 229 points remaining - 6 years remaining I would like to revisit this post in a few years and see the results. I feel the order goes something like this: Henrik, Ovi, Richards, Daniel, Crosby, Datsyuk, Lecavelier, Zetterberg with Doan and Tanguay not reaching the mark. I also feel that Crosby and Datsyuk have the highest injury risk so Lecavalier could reach the mark before them if they suffer significant injuries. So please post your thoughts on who reaches the silver stick achievement quickest! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
