Yeah i love how people has started bringing up the Suter hit in response to all the "what ifs" concerning Mario Lemieux. But okey, aside from that Gretzky did not miss any significant time due to this "chronic" injury: No-ones questioning Gretzkys peak performances, but some people IN FACT try to claim Lemieux AT HIS BEST, was NOT at Gretzkys level. Only "what ifs". If Lemieux had been somewhat healthy, perhaps then the Suter thing could be used in Gretzkys defense.
