Striker and former captain of the club, “Washington capitals” Brooks laich does not hide the admiration sniper exploits of his teammate Alexander Ovechkin.

Last week he called the Russian top scorer in the history of hockey. How notes portal RMNB, from a certain point of view it really is.

How, you ask, can a person who is at the 50th place in the list of the best snipers in the League during the whole history of 30 years, to be the best sniper in NHL history? If you use adjusted stats goals, which takes into account the era in which they were scored, Ovechkin will be much higher than 50-th position.

If you compare the adjusted stats to Ovechkin at his age, with other players who scored from 20 to 29 years, the rate of Russian will allow him to score more goals in NHL history.
