Will we ever see a better player than Gretzky? Will we know it?

When people mean better, they often mean greater. Which player was more accomplished, etc.
This is the problem, the new players absolutely has the possibility of being better but the older player also has a weaker pool to dominate in so it works both ways.
Also your line of thinking often gets applied to 06 guys who are "more accomplished" than guys playing in a 21 plus team league.
Hopefully more consideration will be given to these differences in future evaluations and projects.
