Best Jr. Season

Which of the following do you think was the best individual Junior (QMJHL-OHL-WHL) season? Only consider regular season, not playoffs or Mem. Cup.

Larry Sacharuk, WHL 71-72. 65 GP, 50G, 36A, 86 PTS -only defenceman in CHL history to score 50 goals.

Rob Brown, WHL 86-87. 63GP, 76G, 136A, 212PTS- only non-QMJHL'er to score 200 pts.

Ray Ferraro, WHL 83-84. 72GP, 108G, 84A, 192PTS- only non-QMJHL'er to score 100 goals

Mario Lemieux, QMJHL 83-84. 70GP, 133G, 149A, 282PTS- all-time CHL record for goals, points.

Guy Lafleur, QMJHL 70-71. 62GP, 130G, 79A, 209PTS- only player to average over 2 goals per game, second highest single season total, highest GPG average.

Pat Lafontaine, QMJHL 82-83. 70GP, 104G, 130A, 234PTS- every rookie record possible.

Pierre Larouche, QMJHL 73-74. 67GP, 94G, 157A, 251PTS- leader of the greatest offensive team in hockey history (73-74 Sorel), single season assists record.

Bryan Fogarty, OHL 88-89. 60GP, 47G, 108A, 155PTS- won all major awards as a defencemen, single-season record for points by a d-man.

My vote goes to Lafluer. To average over 2 goals a game is unbelievable. Runner-up for me is Fogarty. What he did that season as a defenceman won't be repeated.

Pat Lafontaine. Destroyed all of the rookie records, there's no telling how good he could've done if he had played more than one year of junior.

VERY tough. All of them except Sacharuk are amazing imo...Sacharuk's not that good...but every other one on the list is amazing. I think Ferraro and Brown are a step below the group of QMJHLers but then the Q is a more offensive league so it's very close.

I'm going to vote LaFontaine, but it is pretty much too close for me to call

A nice addition to the list would be if you wrote how old they were that season, too. Would be a bit easier to decide then.

My choice is between Lemieux and LaFontaine. I'll choose Lemieux. 282 PTS is amazing.
Pretty hard decision. Both is on my all-time Quebec line. Bossy-Lemieux-LaFontaine

I gotta go with Lemieux. To average 4 points a game is incredible. And to think its amazing that Crosby averaged 2.7 points this season. Sure Lemieux was in the QMJHL but 282 points is miraculous. What else can someone accomplish other than that? Crosby had 168 points, Richards had 186 and Gamache had 184. All of those have been in the 21st Century, but they are still 100 or more away form Lemieux's!

But on a Lemieux era adjusted basis Crosby's 2.7 is over 4 points a game and he
was 17 compared to Lemieux's 18.He missed several games due to injury and WJC's
and played 15-20 games injured from the Cabana hit.After the WJC's he scored
an average of 3.4 pts. per game which is over 5 pts. a game on an era adjusted
basis.

The differential between his points and those of the second place finisher
(his linemate)are as good as most on the list and I would venture they are better
than any on a % and points per game basis.He led the league in +/- by a
substantial amount and led his team to a league record 28 game undefeated
streak.

To keep him off the list( especially considering some on it)just because he played
in a lower scoring era is not much different than saying Phil Housley is WAAAAY
better than Doug Harvey because he scored alot more points.

Points alone without considering their context aren't that useful.

I ended up voting for Ferraro in a tight decision, because 100 goals in a far more defensive league than the Q is pretty impressive.

I went with Lafleur for the simple reason..he's my all time favorite player. All the stats from these guys in the poll are simply mind boggling, and hard to choose which one is the greatest Jr. Season.

I voted for Lafleur because I read the stats too fast. I vote for Lemieux. 133 goals is sick, so is 280 points.. wow

Pat Lafontaine was very amazing too.
