He might not put up the same number of points due to the tightness of today's game, but he'd still separate himself from the pack by a good margin.

Your argument is invalid.
Yes, it's like those people who say that if Forsberg played in the 80s, he'd have all the records....even though Gretzky was keeping pace with him in his mid to late 30s while playing for some horrible teams . I remember a 37 year old Gretzky playing for a horrible Rangers team in 1998 finishing one point back of a prime Forsberg, who was 2nd overall in NHL scoring. But somehow Forsberg would have beaten a prime Gretzky in the 80s?
