(and by that I’m not comparing them as much as saying, what an incredible scorer #8 is)

Ovi is on pace for another 50 goal season, which would put him at an even 525. Let’s say he plays until he is 38:

Four 40 goal seasons = 160
Two 30 goal seasons = 60
Two 20 goal seasons = 40

260 more goals for a total of 785. I think that is being conservative as Ovi probably has a couple more 50g seasons in him.

Iggy won’t break 700 and Jagr probably won’t break 800. I think Ovi is the only one with a strong chance of breaking 800 and I would love to see that happen.
