What is the greatest possible season a player can have?

Here's my opinion.

-Wins Pre-season scoring title
-First game of season, gets Gordie Howe Hattrick, Goal is a game winner, and wins the fight
-Makes his national olympic team
-Wins top player honors
-Wins gold medal
-Gets the Mario Lemieux hattrick
-Wins Claude Giroux award for prorated secondary assists
-Wins the Johnathan Toews memorial trophy for intangibles, after out intangibling Toews
-Wins Hart trophy unanimously
-Wins Stanley cup
-Beats Stamkos, Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin and Jordan Eberle in route to Stanley Cup
-Wins Conn Smythe trophy
-Becomes Unrestricted Free Agent on july 1st
-Meets Kim Kardashian july 2nd

Mathematically, there is no limit to scoring, so if you take the smallest amount of time it takes to score from a centre faceoff, and do that repeatedly for an entire season, that would be the greatest possible season.

To have the greatest season possible, a player must break all of Gretzky's single-season records in a single season while also breaking all of his career records that same year. Said player would have to accomplish this in fewer than 1,487 games; additionally, one would have to win the Stanley Cup, an Olympic gold medal, a World Championship gold medal, and win every individual award possible (ignoring the Masterton) including the Conn Smythe, the Hart, the Art Ross, the Lady Byng, the Ted Lindsay, and one of either the Selke or the Norris.

As well, that player must break Joe Malone's record for goals in a game (7), break Darryl Sittler's points in a game record (10), break Gretzky's record for 7 assists in one game, and finish the year with a higher +/- than Bobby Orr did in 1970-71 (+124). In the postseason, said player would have to break Mario Lemieux's record for most points in a playoff game (8), break Reggie Leach's record for most goals in one playoff (19), break Wayne Gretzky's record for most points in one postseason (47), and score more game-winning goals than Brad Richards did in 2004 (7).

Said player would also need to dress as a defenseman for one playoff game and score 8 points, breaking Paul Coffey's record for points in one playoff game. Optionally, said player may also dress as a goaltender for one playoff game and score two goals while also pitching a shutout.

For doing so, the player will receive a PlayStation trophy or an XBOX Live achievement.

As an individual, to win Hart, Lindsey, Art Ross, Rocket, perhaps a Conn Smythe along with a Stanley Cup victory and a 50-60 goal 120+ point season, that would be hella nice.

You forgot a WJC gold but I guess it is hard to get one of those and break Gretzkys career records the same year.

Probably, although I'm going to say those kind of stats would be impossible in this day and age even for players who were at or close to that level now.

The fastest goals from opening faceoffs in both the NHL and Europe were at 0:05. Let's take it for granted that 0:05 is the minimum amount of time it takes to score a legitimate "hockey goal" (ie, no one-timing the faceoff past the goalie somehow).

There are 3,600 seconds in a regulation game. Scoring a goal every 5 seconds, while playing all 60 minutes, would give a player 720 goals.

720 x 82 = 59,040

So the mathematically perfect season would be 59,040 goals. But that player would have no shot at the Selke

Well if a player scored a goal every 5 seconds, there wouldn't be any goals scored against him = Best 2 way forward in the game! How many players don't receive a single - during a season?!

using 4 seconds to score and an average time on ice of 17 minutes spread over 81 games.

Your math is probably right, they just used "if playing 60 minutes per game" and used 5 seconds instead of 4

Average more points per game than Wilt Chamberlain did in his best season. Which would have you breaking Gretzky's point records in about game 55.
