This guy was a frikin machine, an a.n.i.m.a.l....
and I mean that in the nicest way.
To be fair, in 1944 there weren't many NHL players available to put in those spots due to the war. Maybe Richard was the only one playing that night?
Seriously though, if you're going to bring up 1944:
Hart trophy winner, 1944-45: Elmer Lach, C, Montreal
Art Ross trophy winner, 1944-45: Elmer Lach, C, Montreal
Anyone care to guess who centered Richard from 43-44 through 1952-53?
During that period:
Richard: 571GP, 342-231-573, 1.00PPG
Lach: 527GP, 185-333-518, 0.98PPG
Richard: 2, 2, 2, 2, 2
Lach: 1, 1, 3, 5, 7
Richard: AS1stx8, AS2ndx6, Hartx1,
Lach: AS1stx3, AS2ndx2, Hartx1, Rossx2
Richard had a pretty damn good center, non?
