Anyone else surprised?

MN has a total of 10 - 10 - NHLers in history with 200 or more goals. Only recently the last two (our guys Parise and Cullen). This is somewhat surprising to me.

This is dated:

This is positively stunning, considering America has produced producers like Roenick, Modano, Tkachuk, LeClair, Amonte, et al.

Considering we're the home of American hockey (and we are), it's an odd statistic - similar to our lack of HOF-type goaltenders.

I wonder which of our young Minnesota born/raised players will be the next to reach that plateau....David Backes, maybe? He's currently sitting at 129 goals. Blake Wheeler, possibly down the road? Derek Stepan?

My Minnesota education tells me that it is 10 and not nine

What's pretty unreal (and cool) is out guys ZP and Cully got theirs while actually playing for the home club.

Who will be next? Not sure. Watched the Rags tonight for a little while and Stepan looked good. Backes is the clear leader to me, maybe. Big Buff maybe though?

My bad. Freudian slip. They announced nine the other day during the telecast. I posted the thread then copied the link. I blame them.

Any way, edited. Cheers. (yes I'm drunk)

Yes, that's very surprising that only 10 MinnesOHtans have scored 200+ goals in NHL history. It's not an easy thing to do. I think Wheeler, Stepan and especially Backes will hit that mark. If Bjugstad lives up to his promise, I think he can make the list too.

I thought maybe you were revoking Mark Johnsons Minnesota privileges.

So your shot is? What? We've STILL produced more NHL natives from our state than any other in America.


Your point was? Canadians are better? Got it. (I'f we did assemble a strictly MN team we would be pretty darn good right now.)

Minnesota seems better at producing defencemen.

When I read the title I thought this thread would be about the Wild's performance thus far this season. I am disappoint.

In any case, this is the state of hockey as others have said. We'll outproduce any state when it comes to hockey. Except for goaltending that is.

Not surprised, MN doesn't produce flashy goal scoring players, we produce players who are winners.

The typical Minnesota player is a two way guy who works his ass off and is a team guy.

Minnesota-born players are just too Minnesota Nice. They let their teammates score the goals so as not to hurt anyone's feelings.

WGAF about goals. How many were selected to represent this country? How many were All Pro players (not a fan of all star selections)? How many were considered great teammates?
