It is impossible to say how many points they would get. I think with the current NHL 150 points would be out of this world, fully comparable to the 215 point season Gretzky had. What we can know is that both a Gretzky and a Lemieux at his peak would be the best player in the league today, but not as dominant as they once were. Teams have gotten much better at eliminating stars.
Realistically, the best scorer in the NHL will have just above 100 points this season, perhaps 110. I don't think the new goalie equipment rule will make a noticable difference.
