Paulina "The Great Ones" Gretzky is a Babe

Hoy Great God Of Hockey. The title says it all. The link in the title is the story on ProHockeyTalk. This link is the story with some...well, enjoy vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv http://coedmagazine.com/2011/10/24/hot-sexy-paulina-gretzky-twitpics-wayne-gretzky-daughter-photos/

Gretzky, Bourque, Chelios, Yzerman, Roenick, Salming, Roy...Orr and Lemieux?

Looks like the guy on the right in the line-up of silhouettes has no helmet and a crew cut, a la Orr '68. I hope (expect?) the last two are Orr and Mario.

The Islanders weren't terrible then, but in NHL '93 the defense (w)as so poorly graded in the stats, one was forced to play other teams. I used to play the St. Louis Blues for some good parity. With Kelly Chase, Garth Butcher, and David Lowry, I could crush and pummel the competition, while scoring with Shanahan, Hull, Janney or my favorite speedster: Nelson Emerson. My goalie? Cujo. Loved it, and NHL video games ever since. No matter the trials, tribulations, or just hard realities of the real world, in the games we could forget the wreck on Long Island and play out our frustrations by launching Wayne Gretzky into the next zip code.

An interesting tidbit from today's Five Reasons post on Puck Daddy (which, admittedly, a lot of you have already read), in which Leahy interviews Huffington Post and Hockey Independent writer B.D.

"Mr. Gretzky is actively working with Ice Edge Team LLC and Ice Edge Arena LLC (together, the `Ice Edge Group') who may become the eventual owners of the team," said a brief the NHL filed in support of its own bid for the bankrupt club. "We have been working with Wayne very closely throughout this process," said Ice Edge CEO Daryl Jones. "If we are successful, and we expect to be, he will have a major role in the Coyotes."

Anniversaries II: Saddledome

This didn't really fit thematically with the Gretzky/Messier post, but today, October 15, also marks the 25th anniversary of the Olympic Saddledome in our sister city of Calgary. Three years after...

Anniversaries VIII: 50 in 39

It was a magic time. If you didn't live through it, it's hard to comprehend what a record-breaking machine Wayne Gretzky was. He didn't just break records, he destroyed them with a flair for the...

Anniversaries IV: The First Gretzky Sale

Thirty years ago today, on November 2 1978, the hockey landscape in Edmonton changed forever. The World Hockey Association had begun its seventh and ultimately final season under the...

Anniversaries III: The Man in Black

Not all memorable occasions are happy ones. They tend to run the gamut of emotions, something reflected admirably in our iconic national sport. Some occasions can run that gamut all on...

Anniversaries I: A special time

As the Oilers celebrate their 30th anniversary (sic) season, this is as good a year as any to reflect on our local franchise's storied past. Hey, it's not like we old geezers need much of a reason...
