Gretzky said the hardest player to play against was Esa Tikkanen because he knew him so well and because Tik was so quick.
Bobby Clarke said Gretz was better than Bobby Orr because Clarke knew where Orr was going, but couldn't stop him. With Gretz, he didn't even know where he was coming from in the first place.
Stopping Gretzky was done successfully by the better thinkers.
