I'd have to say Neely scoring 50 in 44 games was more impressive. He did all that on one leg and with a bad hip.... amazing.

To me its Lemieux in 88-89 Stat wise, 199 points in 76 games playing with such elite superstar linemates such as Rob Brown. To pull off Gretzky-like stats playing on a team with nowhere near the talent or depth of the Oilers was amazing. 85 goals in 76 games moreorless on his own.

That's disgusting.

In my mind, that is the most unbreakable record in the 4 major leagues (NHL, NBA, NFL, MLB).
That's even more disgusting.

Considering Rob Brown still holds the WHL record with 212 points in one season, I think he had plenty of talent. Take a look at the mind-boggling numbers he put in in the AHL, the guy was not a post.

On the other hand, Gretzky put up 200+ point seasons with Dave Semenko on his left wing. You know, Semenko, the superstar that never topped 27 points in a season.

Trying to say players are great only because of the talent around them is complete foolishness.

Right. Rob Brown was awesome with 438 points in 543 games, truly not a post at all with his 2 good seasons being on a line with Mario. AHL stats? They mean nothing, let's talk NHL.

Gretzky played with Semenko, who yes never had many points but im sure he did enough making sure nobody did much to Wayne giving him all the open ice he needed. Yeah Gretz got a few hits on him in the 90's but in the 80's nobody did anything to him. Lemieux never had an enforcer, and made mediocore players such as Brown and Kevin Stevens look much better then they were without him.

Ken Morrow, won a improbable Gold Medal and then won a Stanley Cup with the Islanders, all in 1980.

I can't even imagine what that must have been like for him.

Take a look at the careers of BJ MacDonald, Brett Callighen and Mike Krushelnyski with and without Gretzky.

NHL players scared to touch Gretzky. suuuuure. If a player is scared he is out of the league. You are grasping at straws.

You are obviously a Gretzky hater and will dispute any solid facts I present so, at this point, I will not pursue this discussion any further.

Playing with Semenko raised Gretzky's numbers but Lemieux was held back by playing with Brown. riiiiiiiiight.

I think the Gretz 163 assists is pretty

Nope not a Gretzky hater, almost 3000 points speaks for itself. What im saying is Rob Brown did nothing in the NHL when not playing with Mario, therefore 199 points in 76 games to me on that team was unbelievable. If anyone of Gretzkys many amazing accomplishments stands out to me if you're talking about a great player making not-so-good players better......Nicholls had 70 goals playing with Wayne and never reached 50 before that. His best previous total for points was 100, got 150 on a line with Wayne.

Fair enough but, what I am trying to say is that great players score no matter what team they are on, what linemates they have or what their circumstances are.

Gretzky broke the single-season scoring record in his second season on a bad Oilers team where the 2nd leading scorer had 75 points. He tied for the scoring lead as a rookie on an even worse Oilers team with Brett Callighen and BJ MacDonald on his wings.

MacDonald had 191 career NHL points - 94 of them were that one season playing with a rookie named Gretzky. Callighen had 145 career NHL points.

Lemieux scored 100 and 141 points in his first two years on a terrible Penguins team.

Dionne scored well over 100 points many times on a terrible Kings team.

My point being, the great players will put up huge numbers no matter who else is on their team. Gretzky would have scored 200 points whether he played for the Oilers or the Colorado Rockies. The reason he was so great is because of himself, not because of his teammates. How on earth could a rookie tie Dionne for the scoring lead (Gretz even played one less game than Dionne) unless he had amazing linemates like Callighen and MacDonald?

Never under estimate the value of a BJ in the lockerroom.
