Gretzky would likely be an 80-100 point guy if he was in the NHL now.
Seriously? That would mean he would have less than half the amount of points he had in his best years with the Oilers and Kings. The 80's were very high scoring but they weren't so high scoring that the number of goals was over double what it is today. Remember Gretzky managed to put up 90 points at age 38 in the middle of the dead puck era. I would say that if Gretzky was in his prime today he could put up 140-150 points a year, which is still ridiculously good. Unless of course you mean that Gretzky would put up 80-100 points at his current age:P
And people will say that Wayne Gretzky wouldn't be as good today because he wasn't as well conditioned as the modern players are. That right there is a weak argument, because if Wayne Gretzky really did play today he would have access to the same nutrition and fitness training that the current players do.
