Yeah, I didn't mean Gretzky couldn't produce without good linemates, but his 200 point seasons went with Coffey and Lemieux's pro rated 200 point seasons did too. It was only an observation. I had Gretzky in front of Lemieux in the center list project thread, so this isn't about who was better of said two players. I still think Gretzky had a bit better team built around him early on though, not necessarily in his rookie season but early on. His team protected him better too. People weren't allowed to ride along on his back blueline to blueline.
