That's a good point. The best data I could find are the hockey-reference.com adjusted single season goals: http://www.hockey-reference.com/lead...ed_season.html

Ovechkin comes in 2nd, 33rd, 64th, 92nd, and 157th.
Stamkos comes in at 7th, 58th, and 119th.

I didn't mean to discredit Stamkos with my earlier post - he's a phenomenal player - but to suggest that Ovechkin was never on his level and had only one great season seems pretty disingenuous to me.
