haha, no I was talking about Gretzky.

I loved cujo and he didnt want to leave St. Louis so Ill always have a soft spot for him in my heart. I'll always remember the press conference when they announced they traded him. Keenan said something like he was overweight or something, thats why they got rid of him, and a reporter asked him about this, and Cujo said to the reporters, "I don't know, you guys see me naked everyday, do I look out of shape?" Great line, I love that sunuvabitch.

That crazy sunovabitch... I don't think he'd be as good as he is today (cujo) if he wasn't ousted by Keenan... I think a lot of players respond to criticism and pressure...

I've never liked Keenan though. He won only one stanley cup in all the years of his iron fist.

Well Greztky was sucking in the playoffs until they pulled his contract off the table. Once they did that he got on fire, so maybe Gretzky should have realized maybe they just did it to get him going. Although if you are the greatest hockey player of all time I could see why youd be pissed. But he still gave away the puck that cost us the series, so for that Ill always be mad.

i dont really like keenan either, he used the criticism tactic a little too often. he probably wouldnt have won a cup without messier either, what has he done since then? nothing. he's a jackass.

Yeah, I'd be pissed too. You don't do that right in the middle of a series. It shows no class on the behalf of the organization. Gretz was never motivated by money in that way anyway. He was all about the competition. He took a giant pay cut (5 million) to go to the Rangers just so he could play with Messier. The Canucks were offering him 7 million to sign with them! That would have been a lethal line combo: Bure and Mogilny, centered by Gretzky. Can you imagine that powerplay? Gretz would have won the scoring title that year had he signed. As it was, he ended up in New York with no one to pass to. He finished his first season in NY 4th in scoring. Same with his second season.

I think someone mentioned something about minnesota while ago which I forgot to respond to. What I find amazing is the Blues have 2 players who arent playing right now because they are injured who combined are paid more than the entire Minnesota team! (Pronger and Tkachuk) Its amazing we are in a battle with a team with such a small payroll for the same playoff seed. I think Lemaire has gotta win coach of the year, even if it's boring hockey.

I was really disappointed by Gretzky's retirement... I don't think he should have gone to New York... on a related note:

New York = missing playoffs again.

If I were any team, I would not want to play the Wild in the first round. Hell, no.

Coach of the year is hard...

you gotta think of John Tortorella, Jacques Martin, and a lot of the "first-time in a while" playoff teams...

Do I hear a Jack Adam's thread approaching?

Yeah, Gretz could have played another couple years, but he had no one to play with in NY and he was too classy to ask for a trade. It would have been great to see him go back to Edmonton for one more season. Even Toronto.

Yeah I got class at 11:15 and here I am talking about hockey on a U2 board at 4:10 am, probably not the most constructive thing to be doing right now.
