One of the difficulties that comes with comparing scoring leaders from one season to another is that league scoring fluctuates, so a 100-point season one year might be the equivalent of a 90-point season in another year.  One way to get around this is to adjust scoring rates by the NHL goals per game rate.  Here are all the players to record a 100-point or better season since the NHL lockout, adjusted for this year’s scoring rate.  This year’s leaders are in bold:

 

  • Sidney Crosby, 2006-07: 116 points
  • Joe Thornton, 2005-06: 115 points
  • Alexander Ovechkin, 2007-08: 114 points
  • Jaromir Jagr, 2005-06: 113 points
  • Henrik Sedin, 2009-10: 112 points
  • Evgeni Malkin, 2008-09: 110 points
