I just don't get it: The guy wins 9 MVPs in 10 years (including 8 straight), would have won 10 in 10 if not for missing 16 games in 1987-88; he is the fastest to 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800 goals, and the only one to 894; you take away all of them, and he is still the all time leading scorer; he takes his team to the Cup finals 56% of the time during his time with the Oilers (he wins 4 of them); he averages almost 190 points a season until he is traded -- when no one else has ever gotten more than that many points in a season more than once; he has the top 4 points seasons of all time, the top 11 assist seasons of all time, the top 2 goal seasons of all time, and the top 2 PPG average seasons of all time; he breaks every important offensive record, regular season, playoff season, as well as career - regular season and playoffs, finishing with 61 official records and over 100 unofficial records -- and people are still questioning him, as if none of this was enough to score 50 goals and 100 assists in today's NHL? I mean, what does the guy have to do?!! If he had scored 300 points, won the Hart every single year even in his 30s instead of just his 20s, and finished with 400 records....would we still be questioning? I have to say, probably so....
