Gretzky was the best offensively. But Orr was pretty close considering he was defenseman. To me leading the league in scoring as a defenseman is comparable to scoring 200 points. But Orr's game was great the whole time he was on the ice, not just when his team possessed the puck.
Howe was also very dominant offensively. Like all players of his era, he was also defensively responsible, which Gretzky was not. Howe also brought an extreme physical prescence to the ice, the complete opposite of Gretzky.
