Art Ross Race Thread

I'm surprised we haven't made a thread dedicated to Malkin's race for the Art Ross.

Current Standings:

Malkin: 105 points, 2 Games Remaining (GR)
Stamkos: 95 points, 3 GR
Giroux: 92 points, 2 GR
Spezza: 83 points, 2 GR
Neal: 81 points, 2 GR
Kovalchuk: 81 points, 2 GR


IMO, Malkin gets 11 points in his last 11 games (99 points) and it's his. And if it's getting close at the end, put out the Two-Headed Monster.

9 goals for 50 goals too. Could do with a hat-trick against the Jet's tonight.

I really hope somone, meaning Malkin, gets to 100 points. If the NHL doesn't have a 100 pt guy this year I would expect some of the more stupider rule changes to happen.

Or maybe this is what finally gets the goalie pads back to normal.

If he played every game he'd probably be a lock to be above 100 points, but I see where you're coming from.

Damn, might only have one 100 point guy this season. It doesn't seem like that long ago guys were approaching 200 points

No way Stamkos gets in, but I had no idea Giroux had caught up like that.

If he could hit an empty net he'd also be a lock to be over 100 points.

Malkin currently has 88 points with 41 goals and 47 assists in 64 games. That's a pace of 1.37 points per game. So, if he has the 7 extra games that he missed due to injury, he'd be on 97 points.

46.59% of his points are from goals with 53.41% from assists. So if he had 97 points he'd have 45 goals and 52 assists.

Now, going to his current numbers. He needs 9 goals and 12 points for 50 goals and 100 points. By looking at the teams Pittsburgh have to play you can work an average number of points per team and see where it goes;

Winnipeg - 6 points in 3 games - 2 points a game.
Nashville - N/A - N/A
Ottawa - 5 points in 3 games - 1.6 points a game.
New Jersey - 4 points in 4 games - 1 point a game.
Islanders - 5 points in 4 games - 1.25 points a game - Play twice
Buffalo - 6 points in 2 games - 3 points a game.
Flyers - 5 points in 4 games - 1.25 points a game - Play twice
Boston - 4 points in 3 games - 1.33 points a game
Rangers - 6 points in 5 games - 1.2 points a game.

So, going by averages he should get around (2+1.6+1+2.5+3+2.5+1.33+1.2) - 15.13 points for the rest of the season. Going by the percentages earlier, 7.04 of those will be goals and 8.08 will be assists.

If my numbers are right he should then finish with around;

GP75 G48 A55 PTS103

Read an interesting factoid somewhere that no one since Gretzky/Lemieux/Jagr has won the Art Ross more than once.

One more reason to cheer Geno on.

I've been watching TBL and PHI scores for about a month now, lol.

This wouldn't even be a race if Malkin could hit an EN, with at least 3-5 easy misses.

Hopin that he has a big game tonight and gets a 6+ point lead on Stammer and G.

If he's sitting at 48 or 49 goals in game #82, I'd fully expect Bylsma to put Crosby on a line with him to help him get to 50.

Yeah, Sid is definitely going to do what he can to get Geno to 50 from here on out.

I know personal trophies don't matter as much to Malkin, but it would be fantastic to have him bring the Art Ross back to where it belongs.

Malkin scoring most likely means Penguins winning.
Pens keep winning they beat out NYR.
#1 Player on the #1 team and #1 in the league = MVP

Aint that the truth. Im hoping he breaks 50 goals and 100 points. He also needs an 8-9 point game so people in Edmonton will shut up about Gagner.

If he'd been healthy from the start of the season, he'd be at 100 right now. With a healthy Crosby, he'd be pushing for 120.

I see what you did there.

I've been told that rooting for a player to win trophies is internet idol worship.

Other than people in Edmonton who cares about that. Guys by the name of Bert Olmstead, Tom Bladon and Patrik Sundström once had 8 point games as well, think anyone remembers them? And the only reason I know that is because I just goggled it up right now.

I agree. But the problem is that I am from Alberta and thats all I hear talked about. Hopefully Geno is strong down the stretch and into the playoffs though.

For the love of God Geno, get those empty net goals if they are available.


Anyone else think Sid will help a lot with that? Sid scored some sick empty netters last year, and he's so good with the puck that he'll find Malkin and make sure he gets a touch on it if need be.
