I was going to post this.
Check this out, first column is Gretzky's age, 2nd is his points, 3rd is the next closest in points, 4th is the next closest.

20 164 135 131 119 112
21 212 147 139 136 129
22 196 124 121 118 107
23 205 126 121 119 118
24 208 135 130 126 121
25 215 141 138 131 123
26 183 108 107 107 105

PS: I didn't remove Kurri or Coffey from the list.

Why was he so far ahead of #2-3-4?
