Hull could have easily gotten to 750+ goals had he stayed in Chicago, but he wasn't appreciated there by ownership as much as he should have been, so...

I imagine he could have scored 50+ goals in each of the next 2 seasons at least, that would put him at 710 or so by 1975-ish. Figure he would start slowing down a bit after that (to maybe 40 goals), and then down to 30 goals after that, he'd be around 800 fairly easily by 1980 (when he retired as a Hartford Whaler). No way does he match his WHA numbers in those years, but he certainly would not have dropped to a 20-goal-a-year player for at least 5 seasons.
