I was born in Nov '83, so I'll be 30 later this year. I know Gretzky was playing the majority of my life growing up, but I just didn't watch hockey when I was younger. Looking back now and seeing the numbers he put up, it just almost seems unrealistic in comparison to the numbers you see today. Was he really just THAT good, or has the game just changed that much since then?...or a combination of both? Obviously they don't call him the Great One for nothing, but I was just curious.
