Why is Gretzky so underrated here?

I read through thread and some don't even list him in their top five. Why? Whether you loved or hated him, he had intangibles too, like leadership and heart. He isn't the "Great One" just because he smashed point record not likely to be broken again. I realize that with some people here the more of a pessimist you are, the more knowledgeable you are, but some take it too far. I can understand Pens fans thinking Lemeuix was better, but the general attitude is that Gretzky wasn't that great. In my opinion he was the finest and most talented player to ever lace up the skates in the NHL. Thanks for your time~!!
