Point Disparity Goals vs Assists

Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in By The Numbers so hopefully I picked the right one. Anyway Jeff Carter is currently on pace for a 59 Goal 8 Assist season over 82 games. He currently sits at 16 G 2 A in 21, which got me thinking about the largest Disparity of Goals vs Assists a player has ever posted. Most of the time you see this with playmakers guys like H. Sedin 10 G 71 A, J Thornton 22 G 92 A, or A Oates 25 G 90 A.

But I was wondering how much of a statistical anomaly it is to have a guy score that many goals with so little assists. The first guy that came to mind was Grabner who posted 34 G 18 A but that's really not that much the difference from G to A is only 16 points. Then I thought of Cheechoo but he still put up 37 A in his 56 G season. The last name I thought of was Bure, who put up 59 G with only 33 A in 00-01 with the Panthers for a 26 point differential. So I guess my question is who has done something like this? Is it as unprecedented as it appears?
