Brodeur? j/k But what type of player are you looking for? A forward, defenseman, or either?

EDIT: And go you mean a current or any player? And do they have to have played in the NHL?

Jean Belliveau. Came close. I was thinking Howe, but he got 103 in 68-69. Insane considering the era (sorry, eras) he played through.

Either forward defenseman, no goalies . Any player, and they don't have to have played in the nhl.

Might be a good pick for current players, but I'm talking all time. Does Koivu match up to Beliveau?

Not including defenders, out of the forwards today I would have to say Modano easy, of all time? not too sure, maybe Maurice Richard or Jean Belliveau.

I've never really seen anyone rank The Rocket lower than 5th. Gretzky ,Orr,
Howe ,Lemieux all have a 100 so there's your answer-Maurice The Rocket Richard.
An old-timer might say Howie Morenz or Eddie Shore though.

what list, the 100 point list? or the best never to reach it list?

By the way, I'm surprised no one brought up Petr Nedved, he's the one that came closest with a 99-point season.

Take Modano off your lists, he scored 100+ points in my NHL 2004 season

Tons of great players never scored 100pt seasons. Just about any HOF who played prior to 1968.

Exactly. Even most of today's elite come at the end of this long line on this list. Anyone who played through the 80s and didn't break 100 pts takes a back seat to those HOFers who played around 48/50 games a season (Howe only broke 100 pts once... and that was post expansion I believe).

Problem being this thread isn't called who has achieved the most without getting 100 pts, it's who's the 'best player' to never get 100 pts. I'd be disappointed if you did research and didn't come up with atleast 50 players who deserve to be above Nieuwendyk on the list. I'm sure most could come up with 100, seemingly despite Joe's 1000+ pts. His only superstar years were his first 4 when he came close, but that was also in the late 80s/early 90s.

As such, you have to begin with the Richards, Beliveaus, Lindsays, Delvecchios, Geoffrions (95 pts in '60-61!), Moores (96 in '58-59), Mahovolich's, Bathgates (only did it in the WHL), Ullmans, etc etc etc. If you change it to be current players, he might crawl up there somewhere. I think Kovalchuk is better than Nieuwendyk at any point in his career... can we add players like him as well? I think Nieuwendyk might belong on the list of current players with the most points who have never gotten 100 pts in a season. That's a pretty specific list though, and pegs him as a consistent player who has played a long time... not the 'best' at any time.

Art Ross never scored 20 points in a year, much less 100. I think his total points is 121 (going by the Legends of Hockey thing). Of course he played an incredibly low amount of games every year, 21 being the most.

He did a good deal for hockey and deserves to be mentioned, even if he isn't the best.
