    I'm not even sure if I should post this here... but...I was curious. So I decided to grab all the information on players that ended the season on the same team, and the point differential between the two players. I've got it all from 1989-90 to 2017-18.

    I can only assume Gretzky holds the record. But here's the top 10, since the lookout. Or the "New NHL"

    I’ll see if I can dig up the data later but I think Gretzky has something like eight of the top ten seasons by this metric, with Lemieux having the other two. Part of this is due to them playing in a high scoring era (I doubt even Gretzky would dominate quite to the same extent if you’re looking at percentage leads, rather than points), but still very impressive.

    Other players that rank highly (at least once) include Bure, Kariya, Gilmour, Sakic and Lafleur.

    I don't think anyone else has had a margin of 50, with Denis Maruk coming in at 49 (along with Ovechkin, as noted above).

    Kariya 64 (108 to 44 (Rucchin) 1995-96)
    Bure 55 (92 to 37 (Kozlov) 2000-01)
    Gilmour 53 (127 to 74 (Borschevsky) 1992-93)
    Lafleur 52 (129 to 77 (Shutt) 1978-79)
    Sakic 50 (109 to 59 (Sundin) (1990-91)
    Maruk 49 (136 to 87 (Walter) 1981-82)
    Turgeon 45 (132 to 87 (Thomas) 1992-93)

    Ovechkin had also a 43 point lead over Backstrom in 2007-08.

    No asterisk for Kariya?

    My god that's impressive.

    Would like to see more percentages.

    92 to 37 is superior when compared to 127 to 74.
