Perhaps breaking Wilt's off court records are more realistic?

A goalie who doesn't allow a single goal throughout the regular season and playoffs...And averages a goal per game by scoring whenever they pull their goalie. Quite frankly much more impressive and impossible to do.

Stan Mikita was 7th in penalty minutes then won the Lady Byng a couple years later.

I'm pretty sure that's the closest anyone will come to this.

There was this weird experiment where scientists were trying to measure Toews' talents, but then his body became intangible.

So, Its a rookie D, name Iwin Itall

- as warmup he scores 50 goals in 30 games
- then he will help to winn the WJC gold for his country (40 points)
- won Art Ross (150 points), maurice Richard (70 goals)
- Selke, Conn Smythe, Mark Messier, Norris, Hart, Ted Lindsay, Calder Trophy
- in every playoff round he scores the decisive goal in OT
- OK, he won also a gold in Olympic games (also with the winning goals in every playoff game)
- he won also a World Cup
- and by the way, he will give 5000 USD for every goal he scored to some nadacy fond
- in the free time between the playoff games he will fly to World Championship and play for his country

He has so much intangible in him, they actually took over his body, and he self destructed into a pile of intangibles, the bright side is, now we can take his left over intangibles and figure out how he got them

The player with the "best season possible" wouldn't need to fight, and why did one poster kill Jonathan Toews?

It will be very hard for anyone to top 2010 Duncan Keith and Jonathan Toews in the current times.

Both won the Gold Medal and Stanley Cup. Keith won the Norris, while Toews won Olympics Best Forward (meh) and Conn Smythe. And had the Jonathan Toews Intangibles Award created in his name.

Well, it took 21 seconds to score the fastest hat-trick so theoretically 60 min * (roughly) 9 goals a minute = 540 goals a game * 82 = 44,280 goals in a season.

That is the correct answer along with any of Orr's seasons of 100+ points and Mario's healthy seasons.

Actually any of those are even better the years they won the Cups. Mario's best regular seasons do not coincide with his Cup winning years but whatever.

I guess the PERFECT years are Gretzky in 84,85,87 and Orr in 70 and 72.

1) Win Vezina/Art Ross or Rocket Richard/Norris
2) Win the Ted Lindsay Award
3) Win the Hart Trophy
4) Be on the Division + Regular Seaon + Stanley Cup winning team
5) Win the Conn Smythe
6) Break a couple major statistical records for your position

That is all the major achievements someone can have in one season IMO.

Add a Calder and there you go!
