As Sidney Crosby holds a nine-point lead in the NHL scoring race, we count down the best points per game seasons.
All the talk in NHL circles recently has been around Sidney Crosby and the points he’s been putting up this season. On pace for about 136, Sid is set to score the best points-per-game average of the past 10 years, moving ahead of Joe Thornton’s 2005-06 clip of 1.

With some familiar faces and promising prospects, we countdown the top scorers from the NHL's farm league.
It’s not often we give the American League much love around these parts (“these parts” being the Top 10, not THN). But we thought it was about time we looked at some AHLers and what they’re up to down on the proverbial farms.

We count down the best scorers in the KHL who had a previous career in the NHL.
Kontinental League teams have played 24 to 29 games and since we don’t often give the KHL a lot of love around here – not because we don’t love the KHL, with its low-scoring games devoid of almost any physicality outside of pure thuggery such as the kind displayed by Vityaz Chekhov – we decided it was about time.

We count down the greatest big-bodied forwards to ever crash the net in the NHL.
