Apparently, there were better 'Kurri carriers' in Edmonton than Wayne. And that's ignoring the fact that Kurri took care of Gretzky's defensive duties as well.
Just look at the last 5 years he spent in the NHL without Wayne Gretzky. I think he averaged around 40 points per season. Most overrated player in history, IMO.
