So, Jagr picked up a point last night to pull into a tie with Howe at 1,850 points, becoming only the 4th player in history to reach that level, along with Gretzky, Messier and Howe. I want to say he's done it quietly, but he's had all sorts of accolades, but I can't help but think he's never been thought of as one of the all-time greats, like the other 3....perhaps underrated?
Anyway, funny part, how old were each when they scored their 1,850th point?
Howe - 52 (but he was out of the NHL for a long while before coming back....so it really would have been 43)
Jagr - 44 (but he was out of the NHL for a few years, so really would have been 41 perhaps)
Messier - 42
Gretzky - 28
