From 1995-2010 (15 seasons): 36 50-goal seasons (despite there being, on average, about 33% more first line jobs - read: opportunities for 50 goals)
No, just that it was never easy to get a 50 goal season. There are times when scoring was up and naturally more players would get them of course. But my point was that there were years like 1991, 1992 or even 1987 when there weren't as many 50 goal scorers rather than freak years like 1993. The first three years are closer to what 2010 was like. I'm just saying some years in the high scoring 1980s weren't all freak seasons and that the 1970s had less 50 goal men than we tend to believe.

While I know there's always that battle between memories and statistics, it should be right to point out that Tim Kerr was a 0.565 in goals per game. That's Top 10 all time (Ovechkin is the only active on the list. I'm sure Crosby will get there soon) and better than Cam Neely, though I know this discussion is no longer about Neely.

Always liked Kerr. The guy was one of the top scoring right wingers of the 80's. Would have been nice to have seen him win the Cup.
