Three different times Gretzky either had more or the same amount of assists as the next player in the league had points. He had 163 assists in '85-86 while the next highest player, Lemieux, had 141 points!

He could put a pass through a skate blade and a skate boot. His old teammate Dave Semenko once said "Don't ever think that Gretzky can't see you" based on his uncanny passes. The thing that separated him was his vision, he was the smartest person on the ice game in and game out. He anticipated the play before anyone else could even see it.
