So arguing that because Messier didn't score most of his ES points with Gretzky is silly, as he still scored 24.6% of his ES points with Gretzky.

It's notable that Gretzky's highest scoring linemates - Kurri and Pouzar - missed 16 and 13, respectively. Who played the wing when they were out? Were they out at the same time?
Greztky missed 6 games concurrently with Kurri at one stretch of the season. Also, Hughes and Semenko picked up 15 shares total with Gretzky.
