from Pete Jensen of NHL.com,
NHL.com now turns back the clock to create a roster strategically stacked with the best statistical seasons—by each position—since the expansion era began in 1967.
1. Martin Brodeur (2006-07 season, New Jersey Devils) 78 appearances, 48 wins, 2.18 GAA, .922 SV%, 12 SO
Brodeur set a record for the highest single-season wins total of all-time, and his compilation of only 23 regulation losses in 78 games is simply incredible. Fantasy owners savored each of his 12 shutouts, while his goals-against-average frustrated opponents on a nightly basis. Brodeur played in all but four games that season—a campaign that will live on for many years to come.
2. Bernie Parent (1973-74 season, Philadelphia Flyers) 73 appearances, 47 wins, 1.89 GAA, N/A SV%, 12 SO
Captured a then-record 47 wins, dropping only 13 contests in that span en route to winning the Vezina Trophy. Save percentage was not a statistic during his days, but his stingy GAA provides more than enough evidence of his sheer dominance. Parent’s wins mark has since been passed by Brodeur, but his earth-shattering numbers that season were unprecedented at that stage of the expansion era.
