215 points in one season.  92 goals in one season (but he wasn’t really a goal scorer).  50 goals in 39 games.  4 Stanley Cups.  I know it was a different era and the goalies wore driveway hockey equipment but seriously, they wore the same stuff in the 70’s and no one put up those numbers.

I wonder how long those numbers will last?   Some athletic records last a long time.  Maris’ home run number went almost 40 years before it fell.  Bobby Jones was the last guy to win Golf’s grand slam and that was over 70 years ago.   However, if you believe records were made to be broken, these may fall some day.

I think it will be easier for someone to break the 92 goal barrier than the 215 points barrier though.
