I think one could say that Lemieux peaked higher then Howe and that Orr had at least as good a package as him, but was better both offensively(Playing from the D) and defensively, that only the physical part clearly goes to Gordie. One has a hard time to not recognize Orrs dominance from the back end and personally i think he was better than Gretzky.
