    I knew a guy who played with him in L.A. ( son of a woman I worked with ) said if you weren't part of his inner circle of players he didn't have much use for you. Greatest ever ? Probably, but one of the reasons he never won a cup after leaving Edmonton was that everywhere he went, he thought he was in charge. Guess it went to his head a little, which is understandable

    gretzky was a Pissy pants spoiled little girl on the ice. Nobody was allowed to touch the little princess. He wasn't "great" he was protected like a little fragile egg shell. Then turns his back on Canada and moves to the states. McDavid and Mariner are 10 and 5 times respectfully the player he was because they get hit by the size of men as big if not bigger then gretzky's cement heads on most nights. Yet these 2 still put up better numbers facing much biggerand better players overall.

    Why does Gretzky look younger than McDavid? Guess when you get to be the best at the time PLUS having body guards with refs refusing to call anything on you takes less of a toll then actually playing the game hard 😅

    He’s a great player right now. Time will tell if he’ll be a legend. For now he is on the right path. I still think Sid viewed as the better player when their careers are both over. Sid has three cups and will most likely win one...possibly two more.

    I’m not even an oilers fan but have to admit it’s pretty neat watching the greatest athlete of all time chatting casually with the current greatest. It’s a little unfair they’re both oilers. A couple really classy dudes though, hard not to like them

    Funny how Messier won a league MVP and Cup in Edmonton (Then another in New York) after #99 was long gone. *Spoiler Alert* also,in today's NHL with salary cap restrictions and free agents not wanting to come to Edmonton (Unless you over pay them millions) i would wager to an absolute certainty the Oilers won't win a Cup with McDavid.. There's no Grant Fuhr on the horizon coming to bail the Oilers out in the net either. (Plus McDavid is made of glass)
