NHL totals:

Henrik Sedin: NHL Totals 277 34 83 117

Daniel Sedin: NHL Totals 269 47 69 116

Now, before people go whining about the number of games Marleau has played as opposed to the Sedin's, here are Marleau's first three years in the NHL and NHL totals minus this year's numbers for the Sedin's.

Henrik Sedin: GP/238 G/33 A/71 Pts/104 VAN '00 - '03

Daniel Sedin: GP/233 G/43 A/54 Pts/97. VAN '00 - '03

Patrick Marleau: GP/236 G/51 A/66 Pts/117. SJ '97 - '00

I'd still take Marleau over two sets of Sedin's. Simply put, those numbers from the first three years for Marleau were with the Sharks. The Sharks, a then six year old expansion team.
You just proved my point and didn't even make me waste the time of getting all those stats. Thanks.

Since when did Patrick Marleau become worthy of the praise being thrown around in this thread? He's beaten 50 points twice, and never hit 60 points. He's doing pretty well in terms of goals this season, but still on pace for about a 60 point campaign even if he keeps his pace up.
