Cheechoo is probably the most disparate one, but some others:
Craig Simpson - 87-88 - Pitt / Edm - 56 goals / 90 points / +20. Best season ever at 20 yrs old. Following year he had 35 goals / 76 points / -3. Never really got to close before or after.
Mickey Redmond - Went on a 3 season tear of 42, 52 and 51 goals for Detroit, then was done 2 years later. Looks like injuries. Anyone know the story?
Gary Leeman - Had 2 30+ goal seasons with Toronto, followed by 51 goals in 89-90. Then finished his career 6 years later, never getting higher than 17. Looks like injuries too.
Brian Gionta - 05-06 - NJD - 48 goals. Hasn't broken 30 goals since.
Troy Murray - 84-85 - CHI - 45 goals - 22 yrs old - never broke 30 in his career. Never broke 20 after 88-89. Retired 6 years later after averaging just over 4 goals a season in his 30's. Looks like injuries took their toll.
Mike Krushelnyski - 84-85 - EDM - 43 goals. Never had more than 26 goals at any other point in his career.
Brian Bradley - 92-93 - TB - 42 goals. Had 24 and a 23 goal seasons and never broke 20 at any other point in his 12 year career.
Darcy Rota - 82-83 - 42 goals. Had his next highest the following season with 28, and then was gone by the age of 31. The first 8 years before then he averaged around 20 per season. Injuries?
Ryan Kesler - 41 goals last year. An anomaly?
John Wensink - 78-79 - BOS - 28 goals after scoring 16 the year before. A fearsome fighter / goon with some skill, he averaged around 5 goals a season for the other years of his career.
