The NHL record book is packed full of incredible seasons, but at the top of most lists is Wayne Gretzky's name.
The Great One is not the only one to put forth some mind-boggling seasons, however. In fact, Gretzky often had some company at the top of the league leaders list. For a more diverse list, I only took one season from each player.
Let's take a look at some of the best individual seasons in the history of the NHL.
Stats: 53 goals, 95 assists for 148 points in 84 games
The 1992-93 season was one that featured some incredible individual performances. Among the best of them was Pat Lafontaine's, piling up a mind-boggling 148 points, which would be unheard of nowadays.
Stats: 65 goals, 47 assists for 112 points in 82 games
In the post-lockout NHL, goaltending is king. The goalies are bigger, their pads are bigger and the position has evolved so much over the years.
That didn't stop Alex Ovechkin from eclipsing the 110-point mark during the 2007-08 season. Ovi also ripped 65 goals that year.
Stats: 48 goals, 90 assists for 138 points in 79 games
There may not ever be another defenseman who will be able to put up these kinds of numbers. The 90 assists are insane enough, but 48 goals from the point? That's ridiculous. Paul Coffey is a legendary offensive defenseman.
Stats: 86 goals, 45 assists for 131 points in 78 games
Nowadays, people talk about a player being a point-per-game player. Brett Hull was a goal-per-game player. Hull did this after the tremendous offensive surge of the 1980s, too.
Stats: 37 goals, 102 assists for 139 points in 78 games
Bobby Orr revolutionized the way defensemen play the game with seasons like this one in the early 70s. The triple-digit assists speak for themselves.
Stats: 62 goals, 87 assists for 149 points in 82 games
Skeptics will point to Jaromir Jagr's terrific supporting cast, but 149 points was no small feat in the mid-90s. It's easy to forget how much of a star Jagr was given the talent around him.
Stats: 76 goals, 76 assists for 152 points in 78 games
Phil Esposito held the scoring record prior to this season with 126 points. He absolutely shattered his own record. Bobby Orr probably had something to do with that.
Stats: 50 goals, 23 assists for 73 points in 50 games
Maurice "Rocket" Richard has the goal scoring trophy named after him for a reason. 50 goals in 50 games is a feat that wasn't matched for more than 30 years after Richard accomplished it in the mid-40s.
Stats: 56 goals, 80 assists for 136 points in 80 games
Guy Lafelur reached the 130-point plateau before it became all the rage in the 1980s. Lafleur carried a talented Habs team throughout the 70s.
Stats: 85 goals, 114 assists for 199 points in 76 games
Mario Lemieux is the only player who has ever been able to approach some of the single-season accomplishments of Wayne Gretzky. In this particular season, Lemieux beat The Great One for the scoring title.
