Will we ever see a better player than Gretzky? Will we know it?

And if all we're doing is trophy counting, Malkin should be ahead of Crosby too then
If you're going to play the "remove Gretzky and Lemieux" card, it's only fair to consider Ovechkin. Stastny never faced any Russians like that, a huge advantage. He doesn't win an Art Ross if he's competing with a prime Ovechkin, and minus Ovechkin, Malkin (I know he himself is Russian but it doesn't matter) adds another one.
