Bingo. No doubt Gretzky is a great player. No one can take that away from him, but if him and Lemieux had played the same amount of games, there would be no comparison.shanny14 said:I think they were showing what it would have been like if there were equal amounts of games played. I can see the relevance here!

As for me saying that Gretzky only one cups because of Messier, well, who of the two of them have led other teams to Cups? Personally, I think Messier is one of the best all round players we've ever seen, and we may never see another like him.
Maybe Lemiux wasn’t likable so all the more reason he doesn’t deserve to be the bestSherek X said:Lemieux just because he didn't need protection like Gretzky to score goals.
With the way the game and rules are changing in the league in this day and age, i could believe it. I mean, less clutching, more of a skaters game now, goalie pads have gotten smaller (maybe not 1980 size) but the game is somewhat going back to its roots.mrccougar said:Records come and go, it may be 100 years until someone comes close to his stats, but one day they will fall.
