That's just sick and supernatural.

Has anyone even done 4 goals in 4 different ways?
I'm pretty sure Steve Yzerman did it in 1988-89 in one game. I have highlights on tape of him scoring on the power play, even strength, and an empty netter, and they alluded to another goal earlier in the game as short-handed. No penalty shot, however. So it's certainly possible, although not probable.

so that losing team comes back to score 2 or 3 goals in the final minute or so?

I guess its possible

If Crosby averages 115 points a year and plays until hes 43, he will break Gretzkys all time points record, I think he can definetly do this as long as he stays healthy, I wouldnt be surprised to see him continually getting around 150 points a season in his 20's- early 30s which will make up for his 80 point seasons as he gets around his 40s


And as others said the game is always changing, who knows if 50 years from now if they have 4 on 4 and games end 11-8, Wayne Gretzky will always be the premier hockey player, like Babe Ruth was the baseball King, Ruth was getting 60 homers a year when other team were accumulating 20

I would hope so considering it doesn't come out until tomorrow.

The Habs 24 Cups will be hard to match. Henri Richard's 11 cup wins is hard to beat also

I understand your point, but just don't get too excited to wait one of these axelssons, or anybody else for that matter, to duplicate that trick.

While most obvious choices have been mentioned, I did not see a comment about Paul Coffey's 48 goals in a season as a defenseman.

Even if scoring is going up again and PP time continues to increase, that's one of the toughest records to break.

Given the parity in the league, I think the Isles 19 straight playoff series wins will not be touched, unless the cap disappears.
Given the way the game has changed, I don't see the George Hainsworth's record of 22 shutouts in a season ever being broken.
Given the way the position has changed, hard not to agree with Glenn Hall's record of consecutive games by a goalie.
Any number of Gretzky's offensive records seem nigh unbreakable as well.

But the real untouchable record to me is the 69-70 Flyers record for most ties in a season (24) will never be broken. (barring a rule change, of course).

My vote is for my favourite entry in the NHL record book:

Most seasons with 100+ assists.
1) 11 Wayne Gretzky
2) 1 Bobby Orr

(no one in third)

Barring a schedule change, no one can break Luongo's starting all 41 home games last season.

Ooops, sorry about that one. Yes, there is a tie for second. Still, a heckuva record.

I'll add to this... 11 seasons IN A ROW with 100+ assists. In my opinion, the most unbreakable record in the NHL.

I wouldn't put this very high on the "most unbreakable records", since Montreal will break it with their next Cup win.

Glenn Hall's is the most unbeatable...SO really everyone is arguing what is 2nd most unbeatable...because Hall's will never fall...

for 2nd place I say Gretz 50 goals in 39 games....

gotta go for richard's 11 cups. Any of the scoring records are suceptable to the "nature of the game" or "future unbelievable talent" arguments, but as long as there is a 30 or more team league, there is no way one player is winning 11 cups during their career.

It's true, no one could break it, just tie it.

Niedermayer has 4, if he counts. If he retires, then theres a number of guys with 3

Shanahan
Fedorov
Lidstrom
Draper
Maltby
McCarty
Brodeur
Brylin
Ward
Holmstrom (although I'm not sure if he was eligable in 1997)

I think that's all of them with 3...

The records which have more to do with changes in the game (for example Hall's record) aren't really worth discussing. I mean, Hal Winkler's 1.60 career goals against mark is going to be really tough to even approach, but who cares?

Of the records which could concievably be broken, I agree with Gretzky, himself, that his 50 in 39 is the toughest. It's sort of like hockey's equivalent of the DiMaggio streak.

That's amazing. 11 consecutive 100 assist seasons when no other player has had more than one. Surely the most unbreakable record from the modern era.
