Personally, I think what made the combination special was 90% Gretzky and 10% Kurri. That's not to denigrate Jari Kurri, who was a fantastic player, but I think with enough time and practice to learn how Gretzky ticked, many wings with talent and intelligence could have achieved a high level of synergy with the great one. Working well with others was one of Wayne's great talents.
