One of the best shifts I've ever seen. Love the Fox keep-in at the blue line, uses the head fake to juke 2 defenders with no space, gets open and dishes it to set up the goal. Not credited with an assist on the play but that was huge.

Tired legs always go for the head fake.

Tired or not, everyone falls for Foxís head fakes. Heís not gifted athletically but relies on sleight of hand and elite hockey IQ to dominate.

Ovechkin gets goals # 798/799/800 against the Hawks soon after Bulls fans gloat that MJ is the goat.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nhl/jonathan-toews-says-his-comments-about-chicago-blackhawks-management-took-attention-away-from-kyle-beach/ar-AAQhJQt?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531

Toews said he had no knowledge of Beachís encounter with Aldrich until the following seasonís training camp and denied Beachís account that he was bullied by teammates and subjected to homophobic slurs, at least where the Hawks were concerned.

Who you believe Toews or Beach about the homophobic slurs? They most likely are both right as they are talking about different situations. The same thing that is going on here.

Even if Ovie passes Gretzky for career goals, he will never be the GOAT of hockey.

Gretzky played 20 years in the NHL (plus one in the WHA) so its kind of hard to define his era.

So when Gretzky played more goals per game and goalies were not as good?

It was the highest scoring era, but looking at Gretz's numbers compared to his generation there was no one getting close to him. Easily the most undisputed GOAT in major American sports. That being said, Ovi is the greatest goal scorer of all time, whether adjusting for era or not.

The end of Gretzs career coincided with the low scoring dead-puck era, and yet an old and broken Gretz was still putting up elite numbers.

I am not making a case for the GOAT but a case for top ten.

If he passes Gretzky for goals then he is in the conversation for top 10.

But keep in mind that right now he has 1,444 points, good for 18th overall (Gretzky is 1st with a career 2,857 points).

And considering that you need to include goalies and defensemen in the rankings, it still would be hard for him to crack that top ten list without being #1 in goals.

I can hear a case for borderline top 10 when he hangs it up, and that would be if we included defenseman but not goalies. But certainly not close to the GOAT convo.

Hereís a couple top 10 rankings for context of who he would have to pass.

It makes no sense, but then again Russian Machine Never Breaks. Iíve been following his trajectory to break the record for maybe 4-5 years now, everyone assumed that he would decline to 30 goals by this point but if he played until 41-42 heíll definitely break the record. Now itís likely he can break it shortly after he turns 39.
