And you think Yoda didn't know about a lot of them, back when Yoda took on Sidious he was over 800 years old...

Jacen acted imbalanced even when not fighting his family, as he fell deeper into the darkside, he grew more and more unhinged.

I admit Luke could have killed Caedus but honestly, EU Luke would kick our little green friend to the curb so it's not fair to compare the two based on that.
I don't recall Luke being in serious trouble in that fight also if you'll recall Caedus couldn't even sense Luke coming. For all Caedus's vaunted power, he nearly got stabbed by his own apprentice through the back. Then he nearly got slaughtered by his apprentice's old man except for the fact he did get stabbed in the back during that fight.

Caedus fed off of pain, he actually did feel it, that said he really wasn't in the same league as Luke Skywalker, considering how Luke was able to lead Caedus around by the nose toward the end. While Caedus had a set of tricks that Yoda might not know, Yoda probably knew a few tricks that Luke didn't even know about (Yoda didn't have time to teach Luke everything he knew).

Caedus also was scared to death of Luke after that one fight and actually he never was on even level with Luke. I don't believe Caedus had ever fought someone the size of a small child that was a master lightsaber wielder either. I really don't see Caedus beating Yoda.
