You have to see Gretzky in his prime to appreciate what he brought. His talent was ridiculous.

People often mention his great playmaking, underrated shot, etc. The thing that separated him from everybody else (besides vision) was agility. The man had simply unreal agility. Just crazy elusiveness.

Here's a great youtube channel with old-time Oiler highlights:
