from John Kreiser of NHL.com,
It wasn't all that long ago that Gordie Howe's 801 career goals and Terry Sawchuk's 103 regular-season shutouts were records expected to last forever. Then along came Wayne Gretzky and Martin Brodeur, who dropped the former Detroit teammates to No. 2 in their respective categories.
Players like Gretzky and Brodeur have set standards for NHL players of today and tomorrow to shoot at. But there are some individual records that don't figure to be broken for a long time -- if ever. Here are a few of them....
Best plus-minus total for a career: Larry Robinson, plus-730
Robinson, a longtime teammate of Dryden, was one of the great defensemen in NHL history. He owns five Stanley Cup rings from his time with Montreal, where he, Serge Savard and Guy Lapointe formed a legendary defensive trio during the 1970s.
Robinson scored 197 goals and finished with 883 points in 20 NHL seasons -- but more amazing was the fact that he went plus-730 in that span. That includes a high of plus-120 in 1976-77, when the Canadiens rolled to the second of four straight Stanley Cups.
