Good for Steve Y. Another dude that has been with one club his whole career

this really puts Mario into perpective as he has almost identical stats to Steve Y.

The stat that I love the most is that Big Mario has played in 915 games with 690 goals. Stevie Y has played in 1506 games.

That is sick and truly a better reflection of just how good the big guy was.

Even better is the next guy on the goal list. Mark Messier played in 1756 games and had 694 goals and 1193 assists for a total of 1887 pts.

Mario played in 915 games with 690 goals and 1033 assists for 1723. Only guy to compare mario with is Wayne. Wayne has pts/game of 1.93 while Mario dipped down to 1.88 with his comeback. Prior to the comeback he was over 2 pts/game. I will also leave out the difference in teams while each started their careers and major injuiries/ illnesses.

In the end this comes back to Mario though. Just imagine if he applied the effort and attitude that Sid has. Who knows maybe he would not have been hurt as much making this whole post an actual argument rather than just me saying what if.

I should have read the Lemieux vs Gretzky thread below. Sorry I did not see that.
