Is this correct? Pens first team to ice 3 Art Ross winners since expansion?
When the Penguins ice Crosby, Malkin and Iginla, I'm pretty sure they will be the first team since the 61-62 Canadiens to ice three Art Ross winners. I think the closest it has come to happening since then is the Pens when they had Lemieux, Trottier and Jagr in the line-up. But Jagr hadn't won it yet.
If we include future Art Ross winners then pre expansion you have, 1953-54 Canadiens Beliveau, Geoffrion, Moore and Elmer Lach which yields four. 1966-67 Chicago, Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita,Phil Esposito.
Pre Art Ross - 1942-43 Canadiens Toe Blake, Gordie Drillon, Elmer Lach.
