Regardless of the argument over who was better at their peak between Gretzky and Lemieux, I just see no way for Lemieux to overcome Gretzky's longevity. Lemieux had 10 seasons of 60+ games, Gretzky had 15 seasons as a top-2 center in the game (according to AS teams) and 16 seasons as a top-4 scorer. Even if you think Lemieux had the better peak (which I do not), is the gap so large to make up for that big a difference in number of elite seasons?
