Also Hockey Hall of Fame was formed, which gets the most outstanding athletes of all time.
Now, let's take a look at this table NHL scorers in the history and consider several outstanding representatives of this list. Should pay special attention to the representatives or, one might say, natives of Russian hockey.
The leader of the list bombardirskogo
If you look at the list of the leader of "top scorers in the entire league NHL history," it is easy to notice that he finished his speech in the NHL in the last year of the last century. Since then, it has been almost eighteen years, and the leader has not changed. Leading position in the time taken for a long time and will take Wayne Gretzky. Speaking about the eighteen years after the end of a career, you can see that this is just the average life of a hockey player's career in the NHL. That is, during this time on the hockey horizon not risen star, which is the brightness of even remotely be reminded of Wayne. If you take another look at the list of NHL scorers in the history of the league, we can see that, although the nearest acting hockey player is on the second place, there are two things that lead to the conclusion that he did not even catch up with Wayne. Firstly, he was already 44 years old, and secondly, the backlog of nearly a thousand points. But the next pursuer under the previous total of seven years, but the lag is almost fifteen hundred points, which is more than he scored in his entire speech in the history of the NHL.
The Legend of Canadian hockey
If we talk about the fourth position in the list of "100 best scorers in the history of the NHL," this place is occupied by the late Gordie Howe. This is an outstanding player and a legend in Canada. It took him an example of Wayne Gretzky. So, this hockey player earned the nickname Mr. Hockey. This athlete began his career in the first post-war season of 1945. And held in various leagues of North American hockey thirty-four years, many players simply do not see out of his career up to this age. Through this long-term longevity Hockey, Gordie Howe had the highest number of matches that is greater than two and a half thousand. For a long time it was he who led the list of top scorers in the NHL for the entire history of the league. But in the end succumbed to Gretzky. Although the number of goals he still occupies the second place, second only to Wayne. Mr Hockey died last year at age 88.
The best action hockey
As mentioned above, the best current hockey player - Jaromir Jagr - is a hockey Czech Republic and takes the list of NHL scorers in the history of the league the second place. What is remarkable this athlete, except that he was not born in Canada, and yet became legendary Canadian hockey? How is it managed?
Although he is acting hockey player and can still do a lot on a hockey rink, yet at age 44 to do it more and more difficult with each passing month. Even according to the number of seasons spent in hockey, he is unlikely to bypass Canadian hockey legend Gordie Howe. Many other indicators it has already taken the second place in the list of the top 100 scorers in NHL history. However, to record Gretzky him away, and most likely in the short time he has completed his career as the years take their toll.
The legendary hockey player, nicknamed the Messiah
Let's get acquainted with another Canadian hockey legend nicknamed the Messiah. It was a nickname got Mark Messier, and if you look at the list of "Top scorers in the NHL in the history of the league," that in it he takes the third place. He spent only one season less than Gordie Howe, and a lockout in 2005 did not give this possibility, then the 44-year-old hockey player to beat this record. He tried a year later to return to professional hockey, but could not gain physical shape. Nevertheless, he is a six-time winner of the Stanley Cup, and fifteen times took part in the matches of NHL stars.
The best current Russian hockey player
If we talk about who is the best scorer in the NHL Russian actions, it is necessary to pay attention to the list of "100 scorers in the NHL for the entire history of the league", and in it you will find only ten active players. Of these, only one is a representative of Russia. 82 position on the list is Alexander Ovechkin. At the present moment it is necessary to collect only one point to go up one step in the ranking.
In addition, it is worth considering that Alexander, if you look at the list of "A uchshie NHL scorers in the history of the league," quite a young hockey player. He today only thirty-one years. And for the top 100 scorers in the history of the NHL is almost child. Since we have seen that many players are playing at the age of forty years. So he still has the opportunity to rise in this list. In addition, it is possible to consider that the actions of the players included in the list of NHL scorers in the history of the league that are above him in the rankings, only five, and many older than him.
The best defender among forwards
If you look at the list of NHL scorers in the history of the league, then at number eleven in it listed Ray Bourque, who lost in the NHL for 22 years and finished his speech in 2001. What is so remarkable about this athlete, that attention was drawn to him? If we look at the role of a hockey player, I was surprised to be found that it acted in the role of defender. One can only imagine the fear in the keeper suggests quarterback who threw the puck more than most hitters and occupies a leading place among all NHL defenders of all time. In addition, the protector of the twenty-two of the season in the league nineteen times participated in the All-Star Game.
Highest ranking of Russian hockey players

Who are the foreign players the NHL could remember most of our fans? More recently he finished his speech at the professional level of the Finnish hockey legend Teemu Selanne. This is the second foreign players entering the twenty of the best scorers in the NHL, and who is in this list of the fifteenth line. Hockey players who play in the championship game and remember their fans usually receive from them a unique nickname that reflects the attitude of the player. Teemu Selanne earned the nickname The Finnish Flash, which reflects the speed of the player on the court.
list of changes Prospects
If we talk about the prospects for and review the list of NHL scorers in the history of the league, it should be noted that major changes usually occur at the end of the list. Of active athletes most top positions are occupied by numbers 24 and 34. And next to them the athlete - only 58. Therefore, radical changes in the rating is not expected. Russian fans hope for a gradual recovery in the list of Alexander Ovechkin, but it's a matter of time. Gretzky's position at the top of the list is firm than a dozen years.
