    Last season Barkov led the Panthers in points but didn't lead in either goals (Hoffman) or assists (Huberdeau). Any other recent examples of this?

    I would have bet a beer that Patrik Elias did at some point, but the closest I could find was 2006-07 when he led the team in points with 69. His 21 goals were 4th on the team behind Parise/Gionta/Langenbrunner. But his 48 assists led the team with Gomez/Rafalski right behind at 47.

    I just checked several Detroit seasons and found at least 2005-2006 (Shanahan/Lidstrom/Datsyuk), 2011-2012 (Franzen/Datsyuk/Zetterberg) and 2013-2014 (Nyquist/Kronwall/Alfredsson). I think it's pretty common if a team has a player with an "unbalanced" scoring, like a clear shoot-first goal scorer or a great offensive defenseman with relatively weak forwards.

    Daniel Sedin, Mitch Marner and Vinny Prospal all had seasons where they didnt lead in one and were tied in the other.

    I decided to look at the 30s Leafs because they employed a pure goalscorer in Charlie Conacher, pure setup man in Joe Primeau and a star that could do a bit of both in Busher Jackson. Sure enough, in 1931-32 Jackson led not just the Leafs, but the league, in points despite finishing 2nd in goals and assists on his own team to Conacher and Primeau.

    Also, the 81-82 Habs:
    G: Mark Napier (40)
    A: Guy Lafleur (57)
    P: Keith Acton (88)

    2004 Sakic tied Tanguay in assists and trailed Hejdk in goals. Forsberg only played 39 games, but had more assists per game than either - I had been looking for a Sakic-Hejduk-Forsberg season that fit the bill but it didn't line up.

    Eberle for the Oilers in 10-11. Tied for 3rd in both goals and assists. Makes me wonder what the lowest a team leader has ranked in both

    For Montreal: Pacioretty lead the team in points for most of the last decade. He also led most seasons in goals (tied twice and once did not) but rarely if ever in assists.
    In 2011-2012 Erik Cole led the Habs in goals with 35, Patch for points with 65 and Desharnais in assists at 44.

    2009/10: Plekanec 70 pts, Gomez 47 assists and Gionta 28 goals
    2005/06: Kovalev 65 pts, Ryder 30 goals, Koivu 45 assists

    If your team had a good PP defensman piling up the assists, I could also see that as good starts (a Roman Josi, Letang, etc.)
