I'm not sure how to respond to this because I can't decide if you are trying to be funny or just have no clue.

Gretzky was a master then because he had an extra 2-3 seconds that Crosby or Kane dont have, if you take off that advantage his production decrease consideratly.
He created that time and space. Just as he would today.

And yes D played the puck way more in the 80's, now rarely they do or they get beated. Once again i invite you to watch an old game.
No, in the 80's playing defense was about standing people up at the blue line. D play the puck now because coaches don't want them to get beat by speed. Apparently the invitation that is needed is for you to watch both old and new games, since it's clear you are totally confused.

Last point, he couldnt be much faster or stronger because he comes from too far...i cant take Ribeiro and teach him to skate Like Mcdavid......i cant take Gallagher and teach him to shoot like Weber, life is not like that!
WHAT?!?!?! You really think that Gretzky couldn't have gotten much stronger or faster? You then try to back it up by comparing Ribiero and McDavid and Gallagher and Weber?!?!

Now I know this is all just a joke, nobody thinks like this seriously.

The game is up, you made it clear that your just having a laugh. You can move on now.

You explained it by saying Gretzky plays what Gretzky plays. Fantastic explanation. Its pretty obvious to everyone what youre trying to do. If 2 players played 75 games and one got 75 points while the other got 74, if you pro-rated the 74 point guy up to 80 games and proclaimed him the better player since that equates to 79 points vs 75 "plays what he plays" points, then you will get called out.

…and I did check your PM but its just you yammering on about decimal places again. Did a decimal place abuse you as a child or something? Seriously, I want to copy and paste your rant here, but I think that’s against the rules.

If Gretzky averages 1.5 times that it's 132 points. Far from 150.
Except we aren't talking about the runner up that Gretzky would be beating, we are talking about the winner.

McDavid at 100 means Gretzky at 150
Kane at 106 means 159
Been at 87 means 130.5
Crosby at 104 means 156
St. Louis at 60 means 90 (48 games, over a full 82 that would be 153.75
Malkin at 109 means 163.5
Sedin at 104 means 156

If I keep going to the 06-07 season the winner has 112,113,112,120, so clearly 150 is a pretty good estimate using 1.5. That is if you do it legitimately and base it on the winner, who would be the runner up and not on the runner up.

So what you're saying is... if Wayne plays 75 games a season in the the 80s, and we have a conversation about how he'd endure the rigours of today's NHL and what his output might be... and one guy projects "150 pts".... we should all assume Wayne's magically going to be able play a full-season all of a sudden, in today's game.

Gotcha.

I'd paste my PM here too, if I didn't think I'd get hit for derailing the thread (like you've been doing). That was the whole point of the PM... to spare the folks from having to read the idiotic fight over the decimal place treatment you won't shut up about.

Nothing wrong with some humor. It's comical to see 99 proclaimed as the greatest athlete to walk this earth in any sport.

I mean, seriously, what about Roger Federer and all his Grand Slam wins? And that's just tennis. Go to a basketball forum and say that about 99 and see what kind responses you'll receive.
