There were seasons where Gretzky had more SH points than most first line players had PP points, it was ridiculous.
I have no problem with people saying Gretz is better but stop with the 5 on 5 stuff. There's a little difference between Tik, Kurri and Errey, Brown.
I remember Ubriaco sitting Lemieux the second to the last game of the season and then Lemieux hitting the post twice in his final game back in '89.
