Date: 1985-86
Set By: Wayne Gretzky

In the last 15 years, the average NHL-leading point total for a season was just under 111. Think about that for a second. The best the league has to offer is almost exactly half as good as Wayne Gretzky was in 1985-86. And this was no aberration, either; he exceeded 200 points in a season four times in a five-year stretch and was incredibly close (199 and 196) two others. "The Great One" owns pretty much every scoring record that the NHL has, many of which won't be beaten.
