You're right, but they were still Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, were they not? Mario Lemiuex's pace during his worst statistical season and games played outscores pretty much every single player in the league. 22 points in 26 games in his final season.

Gretzky still had 62 points in 70 games during his final season. They are two guys who could've still played in the league past their retirement year and been effective, because they are the two most gifted forwards hockey has ever seen.
