76, which, I'm pretty sure was a record setter.

Thx for the info..550 is a lot damn! I would have thought it would have been Brett Hull the year he got 86 goals or Gretzky when he got 92.

When Gretzky scored 92, it was on 369 shots. Hull netted 86 on 389 shots.

Kariya had 429 back in '98-99. But Espo's is pretty safe for now. Ovy has a shot at it

It was a record breaker, it shattered Bobby Hull's record of 58 two years prior.

Hello expansion!

The 550 is an amazing total though considering no one else has come within 121 shots. Interesting that Alex Ovechkin's total of 425 last year is apparently the 4th highest recorded.

I would be interested in a home/away breakdown of that shot total. The person who registers shots for the Boston Bruins in Boston has been known to have an itchy trigger finger when it comes to Bruins' shots on goal.

550 shots is a lot but could be correct. What I remember most about Esposito in those Bruin year's was him standing in the slot and shooting the puck. He rarely went into the corners or deep in his own end. Don't know what his shot totals were after Orr was no longer a team mate but his goal production sure dropped off. IMO Espo is one of the most over rated players ever. His major claim to fame is his performance for Team Canada 1972 when he played magnificently and overachieved.

I can only give you results against the Flyers, but in 3 home games, Phil got 6,8 and 8 shots and in Philly he got 3,4 and 12 shots - a pretty even split

Espo put up alot of shots before and after that season so I agree it could be well be pretty accurate. I don't remember many players who spent as much time in the slot as he did. That 70/71 Bruins team was awesome and set a bunch of scoring records at the time so he had some help.

he had 426 shots the following season. Keep in mind that those figures are for a 78 game season. That pro-rates to 578 shots in an 82 game season

The 70/71 season doesn't really compare to any other for many reasons. Lots of expansion teams, there was a number of weak teams (as well as several very strong teams). The Bruins were stacked offensively with Orr & Esposito in their prime. It would be interesting to see the breakdown of Esposito's shots by team, it would not surprise me if he hit double digits against some of the weaker teams a few times.

I agree. I think Orr made everyone on that team look better than they were. I say that almost regrettfully because that was "my team" back then when I first became a hockey fan and I remain very nostalgic about all of them. But just look at guys like Ken Hodge and Johnny McKenzie who were stars with the "Orr years" Bruins. McKenzie was a mediocre player for years before that and Hodge never showed any signs of life before or after

Shudder to think what would have happened had Orr been placed on a team that could contend without him...

I don't mean to say they didn't have a good team - they had a very good team even without Orr and would have contended, but when they won the cup those years Orr was the difference.

Yeah, sorry if I made it sound too much of a diss. I meant, put him on the Flyers or Canadiens of that time and they'd be just unstoppable.

Kariya's shots didn't transfer into goals like the others:

Espo and Hull lead the league in goasl in the three seasons above, , with 76, 66, and 58 goal sesons.

Ovechkin finished tied-3rd with 52.

Kariya failed to reach 40, finishing tied 10th at 39.
