Next To 600 Goals

from David Satriano of NHL.com,

Patrick Marleau, Toronto Maple Leafs

Goals to 600: 71

Average goals per season: 26

Marleau is 38 but has two seasons remaining on his contract. He's been remarkably consistent, with 20 goals for the 15th time in 20 seasons. Marleau also hasn't missed a game in the past nine seasons. If he can score 20-25 goals each of the next two seasons he'll have a shot at 600, assuming he doesn't retire when his contract ends.

Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins

Goals to 600: 195

Average goals per season: 31

Crosby's scoring talent is undeniable, even if he has more assists (698) than goals (405). He led the League with 44 goals last season, and with 23 goals in 70 games this season he's on pace to score 30 for the ninth time in 13 seasons. The 30-year old has plenty of hockey left and could reach 600 in his mid-to-late 30s if he stays healthy.
