The Gomez List
NHL leader lists are an excellent thing. We get to see various groups of players, usually with Wayne Gretzky at the top, leading a pack of players in a variety of categories.
Although Gretzky’s not in all them of course. He’s not up there in Playoff Penalty Minutes for example. That belongs to Dale Hunter and Chris Nilan with 729 and 541 respectively, with Claude Lemieux third with 529.
Tons of lists. Lots of players with lots of goals and points and such. If you print it off Wikipedia you get about 46 pages worth.
But we’ve got a guy on a list too.
I’d like to mention our very own Scott Gomez.
He’s on this list - Guys Who Have Gone Longer Than 40 Games Without A Goal.
