Wow, Ovi now sits north of 700 goals for his career. Ovi needs 195 more goals as of this post, and he's got another 19 games left this season. He then turns 35 in September.

Selanne scored 232 goals after he turned 35, and that included sitting out 3/4 of the 2007-08 season after winning the Cup and also the lockout shortened 2012-13 season. 

I've been converted into a believer. Ovechkin is going to break Gretzky's record.

I'm very much on board! Man...could you imagine if there weren't the 2 lockouts...he'd probably have another 70ish goals......

He also didn’t come to the NHL until he was 20. Gretzky started at 18 years old.

Covid is probably going to screw Ovi out of a chance at breaking Gretzky's record.

Yeah, it’s a shame. I still think he goes down as the greatest goal scorer in history even if he doesn’t pass Gretzky.

I hope not.....

I mean, he was on pace for another 9 goals this season...who knows what happens next season. But without the lockouts...he could easily have another....75 goals. That would put him at 84 more goals he could have had...  that would put him at 790 goals right now....

I think (hope) he'll just continue to play...and basically become a power play specialist...unless it just becomes too out of reach. But if he's feeling even at 50% and he's within 30....I think he pushes through.
