Yes, Gretzky was incredible.

The year Gretzky broke the single season point record (164 points in 1980-81) he turned 20 on January 26th. The team was 14th overall out of 21 teams, which would make them a 20th place team overall in today's NHL. Definitely below average and Gretzky was carrying the team by himself as a teenager.

I don't think you can ever overstate how great Gretzky was.
