He's only like a year older then Chelios, and heaven knows Gretz has less miles on his body then Chris.
If Gretzky went on a specially designed training regime. Something that no one would have done in the days he played. I think he could do alright.
I think it would take atleast 6 months to put in place, but I think he COULD come back and be a 30-40 point PP specialist.
First of all he'd have to train at altitude. So much so that he only played games directly after training at altitude. He'd never play back to backs, he would barely travel.
But I believe if a team of the most knowledgable nutritionists and scientists on the planet had 6 months to get Wayne in shape and to use every available resource on this planet to get Wanye ready....then yah, I think he could come back and play 50 games a season at a prorated 30-40 points in a full year. Or he could play the full year and watch the PPG dip.
It's amazing what the human body can do...
