Is Joe Malone's 1917-1918 44G in 20 GP the best goal scoring season ever?

The first one 86(Hull) and 51(Three players if i dont remember wrong), and during the second 76 for both Selanne and Mogilny.
I see the point now, % over second place depend largely on the quality of second place. I think that season-to-season point totals are semi-constant, but goal totals are not at all.
% of 5th place or % of 10th place are probably better standard for modern times, though they don't work at all in a year with a thinner talent pool like 1918
