You can't compare them. Anyone claiming that another player had a higher peak is simply wrong.

Exactly. No real way to compare Gretzky to anyone in a serious manner without making the other player look ridiculous

Seriously, is that not more his prime than peak?

Clearly beast career and prime but peak is at least debatable with Lemieux and Orr.

92-93 Lemieux was on a 96 goal, 127 assist, 223 point pace. It would've been the single greatest scoring season in NHL history.

Orr and Gretzky are too apples and oranges. Different eras, different positions. Who knows what Orr could've done as a forward.

First of all, you're not being completely honest with the context of the numbers. Lemieux was on pace for 224 points in 84 game schedule. In 82 game schedule he would have been on pace for 218 (218.94 to be exact but there's no partial points) and in 80 game schedule he would have been on pace for 213 points.

Second of all, if we're playing the what if game, then 83-84 Gretzky was on pace for 99 goal, 133 assists and 232 points in 84 game schedule.

Per game comparison is:

Goal per game:
Lemieux: 1.15
Gretzky: 1.18

Assist per game:
Lemieux: 1.52
Gretzky: 1.59

Points per game:
Lemieux: 2.67
Gretzky: 2.77

The difference here once again? Gretzky played 74 games that season compared to Lemieux's 60.

Gretzky would have had more goals and points during his 1983-84 season, if he played the full season. Besides, Gretzky and Lemieux have a combined zero Espy's between them, and Crosby has eight, so they cannot compare to the Amazing Sid.

Orr's 6-season period is better than Gretzky IMO, it's the reason why people debate Orr vs. Gretzky despite the longevity angle.

D-men Points Per Game 1969/70-1974/75 (150 games minimum)

Skaters Points Per Game 1969/70-1974/75 (150 games minimum)
