Seems to me Gretzky got drilled by Suter in a Canada Cup. I believe a lot of people blame his decline on that injury.
In the NHL no one wanted to be the guy who hurt Gretzky. Suter was a very decent defenseman but that's now how he's remembered is it.
If you injure one of the all time best players ever you end up a pariah.
