Same reason people always attribute Wayne's great number to playing with great players. He never played with Anderson, Messier or Tikkanen.

Gretzky has 1.8 ppg in the playoffs, Lemieux 1.6. Yeah thats a huge margin. His ppg average is better, but thats what happens when you play with strong teams that enable you to consistently venture deep into the playoffs. Gretzky played twice as many playoff games than Lemieux.
You realize that the more games you play, the harder it is to maintain a high PPG average...
