Patrick Kane’s Historic Pace

Entering Wednesday night’s game, Blackhawks superstar Patrick Kane has a career-high 89 points in 67 games. That point total is already good enough to be tied with a couple all-time greats for the 25th best season in organization history, and Kane has 15 games left in the regular season.

If Kane can maintain his 1.33 point-per-game average and play in all 82 games, he should finish with 109 points this year. And if when he reaches 100 points this season, Kane will join an exclusive group in the long history of the Chicago Blackhawks.

There have been only 10 individual seasons in which a Chicago skater reached 100 points, and only four players in the history of the organization have reached the milestone in a regular season. It’s ¬†been 22 years since the last Hawks player – Jeremy Roenick – hit the mark.

Here is the incredible list Kane could join this year.

  1. How in the world did Wayne Gretzky score 212 points , with three other 200+ seasons?

    And how the heck did Super Mario score 199 points, with three other 160+ seasons?

    Different era? Different defenses? HOF linemates? Will 88 approach those numbers when the Bread Man gets another season or two under his belt?

  2. And to think…………..7 months ago most fans wanted this guy ridden out of town on a rail because of some false accusations by a money grubbing daughter and mother. What a difference 7 months makes. AMAZING!!

  3. Can’t imagine where the Hawks would be without him. At the start of the season he and his line were the only ones who came to play. I hope Kane wins the Art Ross and the Hart; and Panarin the Calder; no matter the debate surrounding it. In my mind in that of some in the media, no 2 people deserve it more. Praying there are no injuries!
    With Panarin staying put they should be even greater in the years ahead.
    Anisimov should win an award too if there was one available for him. Win the Cup for Anisimov!!!

  4. Completely different era. Would Gretzky still be great? Absolutely. But just look at GAA from that time period. The entire 80’s decade had GAA above 3.5, with a high of 3.95. If a goalie had a 3.95 GAA today for a season, youd never see him again. 1993-1994 is when the trend of sub GAA started. Most of that credit goes to Jacques Lemaire who re-introduced the trap. Dick. Current GAA is 2.49.

    Kane factors into 46% of Hawks goals. Hawks have 190 goals. If you add on 1.5 goals per game over an 82 game season and use that 46% figure, Kane would have 160 points at the end of the year.

    A great read for any that want the history over the last 20 years regarding scoring.

  5. Not only that but there are far more good teams now. Then there prob was only 5 good teams total, now there is 12-na. Plus they played on stacked teams with no salary cap. Makes a big difference. Nothing against anybody.

  6. Where are all the clowns that were clamoring for the Hawks to get rid of Kane during the off season/beginning of the year. Oh yea they crawled back under the rock they crawled out from under. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I hope everyone who judged him prematurely have the same thing happen to them!

  7. Trade Toews also? His value is at or near peak value. Trade Crawford too. I know what’s coming next.

  8. Boy, it’s no wonder Drump has as much support as he has. 30 percent of the electorate are morons…… And about 25% of this board. Serious clowns.
