Valid point and a true contender for GOAT as well, imo.

I have heard Gretzky say the same thing.

I still struggle with "GOAT" when considering the evolution of the game. I'm not sure why the greats always look backward when considering who was best in their opinion. The one exception I remember is Lemieux speaking of Crosby and Jagr's greatness. Different times, different game, but two of the best as well.

It's a debate that will go on for infinity. Many great players through the years so there are going to be many opinions.

Always difficult to see how great players in any sport would play in a different era. Michael Jordan playing in the late 1950's early 1960's, would he be alot like Oscar Robertson but with superior defense? I think I give nod to Lebron because I believe in any era he would be a truly great player. Same with Gretzky an exceptional talent that would be dominant in any era. So Wayne gets my nod. Brodeur gets my vote for greatest Goalie. A very difficult position to play great as long as he did. Go Devils!!!!
