As I wrote a while back, if Gretzky never got a point for any goal he scored, his placing in the scoring race would have been:

1981- T-5
1982 - 5
1983 - 1
1984 - T-4
1985 - T-1
1986 - 1
1987 - 1
1988 - 7
1989 - 5
1990 - T-9
1991 - 2

That gives him 3 outright wins, and a tie for a fourth, for a total of 11 finishes in the top 10 of league scoring. Three outright scoring titles is a good career for most players; to do that by only recoring assists is simply mind-boggling.
