Parenthesized the team the player scored the most points for in the decade. Also try http://www.sporcle.com/games/MapleLeaf/nhl_defense_decade and http://www.sporcle.com/games/MapleLeaf/nhl_goalies_decade. Enjoy!

I'm not sure I like this division into decades. It would be much cleaner if it just was 90-99 etc, so a couple of half seasons. But still, a very good idea for a quiz. Robbed my idea, basically :(
Nov 10th, 2009 at 12:29 GMT
Yes would be cleaner, but where to get the stats?
Nov 10th, 2009 at 15:59 GMT
Mark Messier never made this list??? Find that hard to believe.
Nov 10th, 2009 at 18:10 GMT
Me too so I looked, Mess had 841 in the 80s and 819 in the 90s, just missed in each.
Nov 10th, 2009 at 22:56 GMT
Just FYI, Calgary is usually abbreviated "CGY", not "CAL". It took me a while to figure out what you were talking about
Nov 11th, 2009 at 00:25 GMT
Ah, thx, fixed.

21.5% of players guessed "Smith"!
Mar 24th, 2010 at 19:55 GMT
No Mario, I guess he never had a full healthy decade.
Mar 24th, 2010 at 20:29 GMT
I think you need to put each team that a player played for in the decade. So Joe Thornton should say BOS/SJ
Mar 25th, 2010 at 00:13 GMT
Agree with the teams comment. Putting BOS for Oates or OTT for Hossa is misleading, to name just two.
Mar 25th, 2010 at 00:17 GMT
years have passed since I watched every single televised game and knew all the stats, but still very satisfying to complete this great quiz. Thanks Lauro
Mar 25th, 2010 at 01:34 GMT
Great quiz. I really need to learn the names of more great players from before the 90s, though. This was embarrassing.
Mar 25th, 2010 at 06:20 GMT
I spent like 2-3 mins I swear trying alternative spellings of "Lemieux" thinking the Francis one was him. hard to believe the #2 & #7 all time scorers arent on the list anywhere.
Mar 25th, 2010 at 11:46 GMT
@RSC: Sry, made this quiz in November and can´t edit it now, after being published, to make a game note. But... the quiz would look very ugly, if I had to put each team for every player. For instance Pierre played for BUF/NYI/MON/STL in the 90s. So I decided to put the team a player made the most points for.
Comment below threshold:
Mar 25th, 2010 at 12:08 GMT
when I saw "scorers" I thought that meant goals, not points. Took me a couple of minutes to figure that out. Please be more specific!! Or make another quiz for just goals.
Mar 25th, 2010 at 12:19 GMT
@tbmusicmaker: He is called 'The Great One', but 1873 goals in one decade? Wow ;)
Mar 25th, 2010 at 16:47 GMT
tbmusicmaker. He doesn't need to be more specific, that's what top scorer means... points. If he was talking about goals he would say "top goal scorer."
Mar 26th, 2010 at 06:38 GMT
Either I'm missing something or misinterpreting the topic, but where is Mark Messier in all this?? Is he not the #2 all-time scorer? :/
Mar 26th, 2010 at 17:28 GMT
I was surprised enough to not see Mark Messier there that I went and checked and it turns out he was shy of the 80s by 8 points and 1 point behind Theo Fleury for the 90s. Odd how a guy can finish second all-time in points but yet not make the top ten in any decade. And anytime anyone talks about the greatest player of all time, I just look at Gretzky's dominance- he had almost double the points of the second highest scorer of the 80s. Over 1000 points seperated him from the 10th position.
Mar 27th, 2010 at 03:40 GMT
wow, good point about gretzky. jesus.
Mar 28th, 2010 at 18:27 GMT
the team names are often unhelpful and misleading
Sep 6th, 2010 at 15:34 GMT
What about using 1980-90, for example, for the definition of a decade? Using 1979-89 makes about as much sense as using 1975-85.
Sep 6th, 2010 at 22:20 GMT
You could do it both ways but it is more common to use 80-89.
Oct 13th, 2010 at 20:03 GMT
spelled lafleur wrong. Yes I am not from Canada.
Oct 20th, 2010 at 09:53 GMT
I swear to god, i've typed in Super Mario in any possible way just to figure out that Francis was a pen once. Never thougt so...
Feb 11th, 2011 at 10:31 GMT
Was Wayne Gretzky a robot? Those numbers surely defy what a human being is capable of.
Jun 15th, 2011 at 15:45 GMT
Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, Phil Esposito, Wayne Gretzky... is it safe to assume that when you lead your decade in scoring, you're automatically a legend? Reason I ask is cus Thornton is my favorite player and though he has been criticized for his playoff performances, look at the other guys who have lead their decades in scoring and that confirms that he was easily one of the greatest regular season performers of all-time.
Oct 9th, 2011 at 13:25 GMT
52-90. I thought this was a bogus quiz without Lemieux or Messier, but I guess their points overlapped decades. Mario started in 1984, so he really only had 6 years in the 80's and the 90's he was injury prone. Messier was a surprise though.
Dec 11th, 2011 at 23:56 GMT
Great quiz. I agree it would be tough to put all the team names in. I spelled Frank Nighbor with a 'u'. Yes, I'm Canadian.
Jan 15th, 2013 at 21:36 GMT
Can't believe I forgot Oates and Toe Blake. Nice quiz.
