This is the thing. Gretzky was 28 years old when he broke Howes scoring record. It took howe until he was 52 to finish his totals.

To me the most ridiculous of Gretzky's records is the 47 playoff points but if we are looking at regular season stats then how about Gretzky racking up 120 points in the first 40 games of the 83-84 season. He had enough to win the scoring title before Christmas.

I dont know how anyone ever beats that again and when we look at all these records, its not even how many he has its how ridiculous they all are compared to his closest rivals.

In any other universe Mario Lemiuex is the best player but adding in Gretzky makes Lemiuex look like a chimp. He didnt break even ONE of Gretzky's records.

In my opinion, Micheal Jordan and Roger Federer were not even as dominant in their sport as Gretzky was.
