It's true though, that, for example, Lemieux is considered by many/most to be a tier below Gretzky. Were it not for his many and varied maladies, I don't think this would be the case.
Well Lemieux's PPG average was higher than Gretzky's before Lemieux made his comeback out of retirement. People still argued that Gretzky was better despite the PPG average. But, it really doesn't matter to these guys. The media and the fans get far more caught up in the ranking of players. Most of the greats just want to win Stanley Cups.
