Plus people here dismiss what Makarov did in the Soviet league (he led that league in scoring 9 times) and for NT way to quickly, Makarov is a top 15 player of all time.
Right, Makarov led the Soviet league in scoring every single season during his prime, except the one where he was injured. It wasn't Gretzky domination, but I don't think any player but Gretzky dominated the scoring charts of his domestic league as much or more than Makarov.

The statement that if you removed Gretzky, Bossy would dominate the NHL only slightly less than Makarov dominated the Soviet league is just wrong.
