List of players with a 50+ goal season and an 80+ assist seasons (Sid to join?)

I know he hasn't scored 50 goals yet, but it sure seems like Sid Crosby is going to become a 50 goal scorer in the coming weeks (how many of you would've laughed if that had been predicted in the preseason?). While that would be a nice accomplishment to an already big resume, the fact that he's had an 80+ assist season (in 06-07) is a pretty big accomplishment as well because it shows just how versatile he's become. What I'm wondering is how many players have had a 50+ goal season and an 80+ assist season (not necessarily in the same season)? Obviously, Mario and Gretz would be on that list as they've done it in the same season, but who else (Jagr, Messier?)? I bet that list isn't even in double digits.

Does anyone know how I can find this out?

EDIT: With a lot of help from PensAreYourDaddy, I've come up with this list with the player's all time points ranking and  the year they first accomplished 50+ goals & 80+ assists (whichever came last):

1. Wayne Gretzky (79-80)

2. Mark Messier (89-90)

5. Marcel Dionne (79-80)

6. Steve Yzerman (88-89)

7. Mario Lemieux (86-87)

9. Jaromir Jagr (00-01)

15. Bryan Trottier (81-82)

18. Dale Hawerchuk (92-93)

24. Guy Lafleur (76-77)

51. Mike Bossy (81-82)

71. Pat Lafontaine (92-93)

Sid would be the 12th player on this list, and he'd be the first to do it since Jagr in 2001. It should be noted that every one of these players has over 1,000 career points and only Lafontaine and Bossy have less than 1,350; all but Jagr (as his NHL career only ended 2 seasons ago and he's still playing in the KHL) are in the Hall of Fame.

Pretty damn good company if you ask me.
