While there have been plenty of great individual seasons throughout Blues history, they all realistically pale in comparison to Brett Hull’s 1990-91 campaign. He set career highs in goals and points, both of which became Blues franchise records that stand to this day. Somehow, while scoring 86 goals through 76 games, Hull also managed to add 45 assists (for reference, five more than any Blues player had during the 2014-15 season), which added up to an average of 1.68 points per game.

Perhaps it’s most impressive that Hull represented himself well on both ends of the ice and earned a plus-23 rating. One would think that would be rather easy considering how prolific he was as a scorer, but defense was not the strength of Hull’s game by any means, as he earned only seven positive plus-minus ratings over the course of his 19-season career. His all-around success just further accentuates how good he was during 90-91.

In addition, Hull delivered a fantastic preseason performance, collecting 19 points over 13 games as the Blues advanced to the Division Finals. All of his success was enough to earn him both the Hart Trophy (MVP) and Ted Lindsay Award (most outstanding player as voted on by the NHLPA), and now it earns him our number one ranking for the best single-season performance in Blues history.
