It appears Gordie was very close at age 40 in '69. I did a quick tally, so it could be off, but show that thru 35 games it was very tight:

Hull 49
Howe 48
Espo 47

After that, Howe slipped behind Espo, who also passed Hull in game 39.

The oldest player to have be at the top for a significant length of time was likely Mario in '03. He was ahead for most of the season, and still tied for the lead with 15 games left at age 37.
