Lemieux was also a better puck handler / dangle master and his wrist shot was clearly superior, but whatever. Gretzky wins every poll here, no matter what
Gretzky was the best playmaker, but above all he was the most determined and the most competitive of the superstars. He used his potential more wisely than others. That's why he had the best results, not because he had a better physical skillset than Lemieux, Jagr or Fedorov.
edit: voted for Lemieux.
