Well, I mean, there's back in shape and there's fit and strong enough to play in the NHL again. My whole point is that the premise of the thread is flawed. The guys who play/have played at his age played largely uninterrupted, and we're able to maintain a certain level of strength/fitness (Chelios, etc... even Gordie only took 2 years off at age 43, 44, and Gretzky does not have the gift of a freakish body like Gordie). But sure, Gretzky at 48 after 10 years off...

...While we're at it then, what if he was 6 foot 4 instead of 5 foot 10, how many points would he get?
