Highes assist-to-goal ratios among forwards?

I was messing around with the hockey reference play index tonight out of curiosity. I really know how to party. Here's what I came up with for career and single season. If anybody else remembers any particularly pass-happy players or seasons, let me know. I kind of didn't bother with guys that didn't score at least 40 or so points, I'd like to see some freaky 3 goal 30 assist seasons or something.

I'm sure if pnep sees this he'll have an exhaustive list (that I'd love to see) that renders all of this information and all of my work useless, but dammit it was fun and educational to do it by hand anyway!

Career
Henrik Sedin- 506/157 = 3.22
Adam Oates- 1079/341 = 3.16
Scott Gomez- 506/167 = 3.02 (why am I not surprised?)
Craig Janney- 563/188 = 2.99
Igor Larionov- 475/169 = 2.81
Pelle Eklund- 335/120 = 2.79
Terry Ruskowski- 313/113 = 2.76
Doug Weight- 755/278 = 2.71
John Chabot- 228/84 = 2.71
Joe Juneau- 416/156 = 2.66
Nicklas Backstrom- 230/87 = 2.64
Andrew Cassels- 528/204 = 2.58
Peter Forsberg- 636/249 = 2.55

Single Season
Joe Juneau 94-95 = 38/5 = 7.6 (same season Bondra had a ridiculous 34 goals and 9 assists)
Henrik Sedin 06-07- 71/10 = 7.1
Terry Ruskowski 80-81 51/8 = 6.38
Jozef Stumpel 01-02- 50/8 = 6.25
Wayne Gretzky 98-99- 53/9 = 5.88
Bill Cowley 41-42- 23/4 = 5.75
Walt McKechnie 79-80- 40/7 = 5.71
John Chabot 84-85- 51/9 = 5.66
Adam Oates 00-01- 69/13= 5.30
Dave Keon 79-80- 52/10 = 5.2
Dale Hawerchuk 93-93- 80/15 = 5
Billy Hay 61-62- 52/11 = 4.72
Adam Oates 01-02- 64/14 = 4.57
Guy Chouinard 82-83- 59/13 = 4.53
John Chabot 89-90- 40/9 = 4.44
Joe Thornton 06-07- 92/22 = 4.31
Craig Janney 97-98- 43/10 = 4.3

Wayne Gretzky scored too many goals early on to factor into the career list, but just for fun, his post-Oiler assist-ratio is a career 877/311 = 2.81, fittingly making him the Canadian Igor Larionov.

I did this once for wingers, and found that Ales Hemsky had the highest career A:G ratio in history.

G:114 A:281 = 2.46 ratio

That's pretty incredible for that position.

Ted Hampson didn't meet your criteria for this study, but I reckon he'd rank pretty high. Same with Art Chapman, and that was back when the league average wa 1.00.

Most of these players were extreme playmakers on the power play, where players are more likely to have a specific role in terms of passing or shooting.

Bill Hay in 61-62 is an exception. 8 of his 11 goals came on the power play, and at even strength he had 3 goals and 38 assists! He was playing on a line with Bobby Hull, so you can understand why he would pass the puck.
