In the end, Bossy's career was what it was, and a second 7-10 year run of 50 goal seasons has to be a much bigger leap to make than a period spent declining.
bossy averaged 61 goals per 80 games over ten years. 61 is much more than 50.

of course there would be decline, but even in his last session that he played in constant pain, he was on a 48 goal pace.

he scored the type of goals that are impossible to defend, hence, the consistency at all levels, from junior to international.

I have little doubt Bossy would have scored a lot of goals for the next ten, if he was remotely healthy. not unlike Mario would have, injury aside. Of course, we will never know.

doesn't change the fact that bobby hull was probably the better player and goal scorer though.
