I can't believe you wrote that. What does SKILLSET have in common with ACHIEVEMENTS?

As for Lemieux what skill set did he have that Gretzky didnt? Note that I dont consider being bigger to be a skill.
Again, this is not about who was the better player, but who was more talented. Fedorov and Lemieux were faster, stronger, and had better shot than Gretzky. Obviously, Gretz made up for all of those with his godlike vision and hockey sense, but as far as those skills listed, he can't hold a candle to either of them. Again: Gretzky was the best hockey player ever by a long shot, but as far as pure skill goes, 66 and 91 were better.
