He scored 303 goals in the WHA, 610 in the NHL, if say he stayed on the same pace in the NHL during those years and scored 913 goals for his career.

Yes i was bored and just thinking too much playing around on Hockeydb. Just something to discuss.

He was on the downside of his career and likely could have topped 750 but to suggest he would score at the same rate in the NHL is insane in my view. He was on a great line in the peg and well the rest of the WHA didn't have great lines to say the least.
