There's no denying his numbers. However, if I didn't know them and I were starting a team I might pick Mario Lemieux over him.

By the way, I consider Bobby Orr to be the greatest ever and my all-time hockey hero remains Maurice Richard for sentimental reasons.
Ironic, the only defenseman to lead the league in scoring...numbers are everything.
Also, my favorite player of all time is Mario Lemieux. Give him a healty 20 year career and he and Gretzky are closer in points.
