Playing most of that time with Wayne?
How does Jari stack up in adjusted goals and points?
How about as a % of the 2nd best in goals and points each season (Lord's method).
Pretty sure that if you put it in context then the case for Jari becomes a lot more difficult (other than career at this point).
AO leads the next best goal scorer in his first 8 seasons in the league by 51 goals (another Russian incidentally) 359-308.
The top 5 are rounded out by
Eric Stall 255
AO is also 1st in points over that time.
Kurri is 3rd in his first 8 seasons and stands like this
Kurri is 4th in points
Given the advantage of playing with Wayne, it's doubtful that his defesne makes up for the large margin of victory that aO has in this reguard.
Furthermore, Makarov is considered by most the best RW of the 80's not Kurri and he wasn't in the NHL then.
