What would it take to break Lemieux’s records?

Sidney Crosby set the franchise all-time games played record in February, surpassing Mario Lemieux's 915 games.

Lemieux, of course, is still the record holder in nearly every offensive category. Crosby is No. 2 in most offensive categories, with Evgeni Malkin holding the No. 2 spot in some other categories.

How close are Lemieux's records from being broken, and what would it take for someone to break them? Let's take a look.


Lemieux ranks No. 1 with 690 goals, and Crosby is No. 2 with 446. It would take 245 goals for Crosby to pass Lemieux.
