OK, now I'm convinced you're just trolling.

No one can teach how Gretzky played the game. To most, that only enhances their opinion of him.

Basically, your critique is boiling down to "he played the game differently, he played the game uniquely. Therefore he is inferior to his peers that he outplayed." I can just imagine you arguing that Bobby Orr isn't a top 5 defenseman because "he excelled too much at the offensive spectrum of the game, a talent not intended for the position, in the process taking away opportunities for forwards (making him a bad team player)."
