As to your 1st point on era not mattering, thanks for the info and your input will be judged on those facts.
If context doesn't matter then what exactly does?
Of course context matters but your idea of context comes from a world where the sky is all rainbows, chickens lay golden eggs and candy grows on trees.
Again, Gretzky didn't play in a vacuum. Guys like Stastny or Bossy who were just as good or better than anyone in the league today couldn't come close to doing what Gretzky did with Edmonton or with the King's for that matter.
Your premise, your theories, your logic all fall on their face the second we start talking about actual player to player, era to era comparisons, they always have.
That's a fact!
