From Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy:
As we continue our rankings of the best in the last decade, it’s time to look back at the best single-season performances from players in the 2000s.
We’re going for the total stats picture, and not just one facet (goals, for example). Looking back at the last 10 years, there have been some awesome performances, but only a few that cracked the NHL record book in a significant way.
Some criteria to keep in mind: This is a regular-season list. History matters, as far as records and awards. So does context, when considering where that particular season falls in with a players’ career. The differences between the NHL before and after the lockout should be kept in mind in a grain-of-salt way, although they’re not a primary consideration here. Oh, and if your favorite forward isn’t here, it’s because we tried to make room for defensemen and goalies.
Jaromir Jagr’s 2005-06 season is on this list at No. 10, when he posted 54 goals and 123 points.He had the Art Ross Trophy lead until the last game of the season when San Jose Sharks’ forward Joe Thornton took over and won the scoring crown.
