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

As Warren Beatty said about what makes a woman good in bed, "She shows up." At least Savard, Dionne, Nilsson and Stastny showed up in defensive zone.
Don't know how much of Gretzky or Lemieux you saw, but in my lifetime of watching NHL hockey (going back to the 60s) I never saw another center play defensive like they did. Both played more D when they were older, granted. Be neither played much of it.
I think we both saw the same Mario but we did not see the same Gretzky.
