Yes, and it also tells you something about how amazing Gretzky was to have played against that amazing Russian team, while on a team of HOFs himself, and then to have been basically THE SOLE REASON Canada won that Canada Cup. 9 points in 3 games against the best team in the world (5 in just one game, which happened to be the "do or die" game of the series for his team). Wow.
