In fact the last time a player had more assists than Thornton's 96 assist season in was 1992-1993 when Adam Oates had 97, the difference being that NHL scoring was 7.25 goals per game to 6.17 goals per game in 2005-2006. It's incredibly, you have to go back 20 years to find a season with more assist's than Thornton's amazing year and even then, it was by 1 assist in a much higher scoring era.
