#3 Dennis Maruk
Believe it or not, Dennis Maruk actually had a season that was even better than Alex Ovechkin. The best season Ovechkin had was when he recorded 112. Maruk had 136 points during the 1981-82 season with 60 goals and 70 assists.
Maruk was traded to the Capitals by Minnesota in the beginning of the 1978-79 season. He went on to score 31 goals and add 59 assists for 90 points. The assists and points led the team while his 31 goals tied for the team lead. The next season saw him score 10 goals and add 17 assists for 27 points in 27 games. Although the numbers dipped it was because it was an injury plagued season.
In the 1980-81 season, Maruk scored 50 goals and had 47 assists for 90 points before that ginormous 136 point season the next year. That next season after that was his final season in D.C. where he scored 31 goals and added 50 assists for 81 points. He also had a goal and an assist in four playoff games. In July of 1983 he was traded back to the Minnesota North Stars for a second round pick the next year that turned out to be Stephen Leach.
Maruk was a unique player, boasted a killer mustache, and was known by his teammates with the nickname “pee wee”.
