It would probably take him atleast 3 years of dedicated training to get back to a physical level he would be confident enough to jump on the ice at. By then he's 50, everyone around him is younger, faster, bigger, stronger, and sharper having played uninterrupted for years previous... Bet you he would still look decent skating around in practice though. Or against the Asian League.
Every effort to interpret the jumble of sentences you call a post is an attempt. How can something be more intact than something else? Either it's intact or it's not. What's intact for Gretzky might not be as great as it once was, but no one in good mental health is saying that.

...While we're at it then, what if he was 6 foot 4 instead of 5 foot 10, how many points would he get?
Did you run into walls as a kid? "On the condition that Gretzky got back in shape, how would he perform?" It's a viable premise. Gretzky could get back in shape, the human body is capable of such a thing. The human body isn't capable of growing 4 inches in your middle ages.

Gretzky is 6 foot btw.
