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

. Gretzky wasn't physical but it didn't prevent him for being a master of takeaways, he wasn't the greatest defensive forward ever but still played almost every PK.
That can be accomplished by stopping goals as well as creating them. When Gretzky led the league in scoring with 130 points in 93/94, he was a -25. By far the worst number for an Art Ross trophy winner ever.
Mario holds the record for shorthanded goals in a season so playing on the PK really has nothing to do with defensive play for these guys. IN their era all the offensive stars played on the PK.
