If you're going to go with who they were playing with as your barometer, why don't you go with Gretzky's 212 points in 81-82 when Wayne more than doubled anyone else on his team and beat his 2nd place teammate (Anderson) by 15 points with his assists alone? Think about that for a second: Gretzky scores a record 92 goals, but if you remove every single one of those record 92 goals, he still demolishes everyone else's point total with his assists alone. Mario has never done anything like that.
