haha. I have been watching the canucks since the 80s. So I think I know a few things about the game. 

Not sure how long u have been playing hockey for but u sound like someone who never really played it competitively. (How could someone not see a slap pass until the 2000's? That really surprises me)

And please stop with blind accusations. :) I m not "Foolish" nor a "younger" fan. 

 

Sharing ur opinion with other fans is good. But when the comments are false and offensive to other fans, u need to stop and reflect.

And having a lot of fans is great for the organization. But fans like u who throw blind remarks add no value to it. 

Praise is due where it is due but stop adding false praises. 

 

Sedins are great as they are. There is zero doubt that they are future HoFers. 

Fans like u don't help them. U pretty much taint their true great accomplishments.

 

So hopefully, u ll be more thoughtful with ur comments in the future. 

Good rebuttable.  I always scratch my head when there are comparisons to different eras, like Howe and Richard were slow out of shape players and would be eaten alive in today's faster NHL and 6 6 goalies.  Howe was such a physical specimen that a famous doctor who evaluated top athletes physicality put him at the very tippy top of the heap with ALI and Foreman.  These guys didn't have the same regimen as they have today, but it doesn't mean they were pilons either.  And as from the topic, a hard pass to an open guy has been around before guys like Eddie Shore patrolled the Blueline, the Sedins didn't invent this move, they popularized it.  Just like the Slapshot was given credit to BOOM BOOM and Hull Senior, other guys used it at times decades before them.

When u call people foolish and try to ridicule them by quoting wikipedia, I expect ur posts to be a lot more reliable than that. 

 

And yes, it is good to hear ur opinion on that matter.

 

Being a Nux fan for decades, Sedins are much higher on my list than Gretzky.

But I just didn't like false information being posted to advocate Sedins when there really is no need.

Sedins are great as they are. No need to put false praises on them.

If u r unsure what I mean by false praises, read ur first 2 posts in this thread. 

Well I like to exaggerate a lot in my posts... and you are right, I did say they invented it initially. I should have said they pioneered it from the start. 

 

+1 Hydration! 

 

But in all seriousness, put Sedins in that Era and they aren't too far away from Wayne IMO at their peak. I don't like Wayne... as a Canadian he should have never turned his back on the Oilers ... or at least should have demanded a trade back to Canada. I feel this way about a lot of stars... I hate watching this league and watching American teams win the cup year after year and have their american fans be happy.

 

Us Canadians deserve it and we would be winning cups if some of these super stars begged to come back to Canada. Even Stammer took what 4 million less to stay in Tampa over Toronto? I don't respect that much... be loyal to your home town. Wayne is a total US sell out... lives down there too. Should have come home and played for an Ontario team IMO.

Wow... So only 33 behind now? I really hope they play another year and reach this milestone. 

 

Imagine they played in the high scoring era where jokes of shots went by goalies because they had almost no padding... they would have probably double Wayne and Kurri.

Gretzky and Bure would have been close to Gretzky and Kurri. Damn McCaw, why did you force Quinn to make that call in the middle of the night.

Is that the story? I know there was an extra call made... but was it McCaw that forced him? He was a garbage owner regardless ... so glad he's gone... in terms of spending on the team at least. Didn't have deep enough pockets to help us dominate when there was no salary cap :(

 

Can't really blame either McCaw or Quinn though... what an egotistic sack wayne was... to chose a sad american city over a team in his home country... never liked Wayne. Never will.

Stop piling on Wayne.  Buy his book and learn more about why he left, what he thinks of Canadian hockey, and some on why he didn't sign with Vancouver, his reasons are good.   Almost zero ego in the guy, he's more impressed with others did, have done and are doing then he ever accomplished.

 

Anyone who stands up for Canada and Canadian hockey is good in my books, he did that in 2002 running that team, first Olympic gold in fifty however many years, played a ton of international events himself ( fun to read about Lafluer going for smokes between periods when he was just getting started), and because I watched what he did as much as I could when he was destroying the records and one of the best players for the first fifteen years of his career, i don't think the Sedins compare to him and Kurri.

 

Last I heard the Sedins are Swedish no?  And doesn't Wayne spend most of his time doing some futile role in the Oilers now?  He married an Actress, who worked in LA.  Yes it broke all our hearts, but I think it was long enough ago that we can forgive him.  He also broke a lot of TO fans hearts in 93 which is funny.

 

If the Sedins break this record it would be great, but you'd have to put an asterisk next to them or second place given Gretzky and Kurri managed about the same in half the games.

 

Edit: ps Appolo it's taking some time to get used to your new logo.  Nevermind anything I said, the Sedins are the greatest players all time in all of sports, and Wayne should consider himself lucky that they are close to breaking one of his records, in fact should call and congratulate them.

I didn't know this and read this after the game in Chicago, pretty interesting stuff especially when you have a guy named Gretzky in the talk, anytime you have a chance to pass Gretzky in the record books is a big thing in my mind. 

 

This NHL record is for players who have combined points on a goal, with the way the NHL is now a days it's not easy to play with the same player all the time, but luckily for the Sedins they have.

 

The Sedins combined on goals for the 703rd and 704th times, second only to Wayne Gretzky and Jari Kurri, who did it 764 times.

The list of stats are from a page from 2011 obviously the Sedins are updated to 2018, but it's been 7 years and starting to wonder if any other duo players are near any of those legends. The 2 that come to mind are Ovie and Backstrom, something tells me there near that 476 area or more maybe, I just don't have an updated list of this stat and can't find it anywhere....

Also, Backstrom really has been a silent superstar.  He has only played in one All Star Game, and has never been a postseason All Star, but has been top 10 in NHL scoring five times.  That's pretty much Hall of Fame stuff (Daniel has only done it twice).

Sedins have been on fire as of late (March 3). Daniel has 8 goals in his last 8 games, and 9 points in his last 5 games.

Does anybody know how close they are to this record now?

Gretzkys is quivering in his boots, soon the count down of his records will be diminished into the fifties.

 

Ha ha.  Not sure but if the sign one more year it will be there's.
