Many people probably also do not realize that a 90+ assist season is akin to a 70+ goal season. It represents a dominant performance by Thornton in 2005-06 (and then 2006-07).

When 2005-06 and 2006-07 are top-25 seasons all-time for assists and the only names above you read Gretzky, Orr, and Lemieux. That is an impressive performance.
