Post-expansion HOF forwards should be able to hit one of these marks:
- more than 10 playoff series won
- over .500 win% in playoff series
- 100+ playoff points
- PPG+ in playoffs
Yet these are among the players who haven't hit
Dionne, Turgeon, Mogilny, Selanne, Kariya, Naslund, Iginla, Thornton, Kovalchuk, the Sedins
Amazingly, those 11 forwards have averaged less than: 65 playoff points, .78 playoff PPG, 6 series victories, and a 40% win% in playoff series. They averaged more than PPG in only 18 out of 98 playoffs.
i agree that all of those guys have playoff resumes that leave you wanting more, given their regular season statures. but at least for the guys on that list who peaked during the DPE, i think it's a little much to ask for PPG+ in the playoffs. i mean, even fedorov doesn't have that.
likewise, 100+ playoff points. pavel datsyuk, a year older the the sedins, has been on the most consistently competitive playoff team since the turn of the millennium and he hasn't yet hit 100 playoff points.
