    He might be the greatest, but it is that age old argument about different generations and different conditions and different game style.

    Certainly, Gordie Howe would have to be on the list right there with Gretzky.

    This is no different than the Micheal Jordan as Greatest basketball player while Bill Russell, Kareem Jabbar, Larry Bird and even now some say Kobe Bryant.

    In football you have the same arguments between eras as you also do in baseball.

    I would say the very best are in a short list class by themselves.

    I agree 100%. Wayne Gretzky is the greatest hockey player there ever was...and the greatest that ever will be!

    There's no question he's the greatest. Eight consecutive league MVP's?
    "Nuff said.

    I'd say he is the greatest as well. Of course some of us didn't have the pleasure to witness some of the players before him. Bobby Orr, Bobby Hull to name a few.
    Let's ask this question....who are some of the other players that would make this an interesting debate.....Mario Lemieux, Brett Hull, Steve Yzerman were some great players, but they can't touch the Great one.
