I think you guys need to think about what you are arguing about. Cause I don't think you are arguing anything.

Yes, there were enforcers on Wayne's team. Has been on every team in every era. This isn't special to Wayne. They are there to make sure players don't take any "extra" liberties with a player.

What the myth is that players intentionally decided not to give Wayne a bodycheck or the ref's made sure no hit him or he had a free ride. This is the myth. Gretzky avoided contact like the plague during actual play. That's where his smarts came in like peopke are saying etc etc etc. Opposition tried like heck to lay Gretzky out with a bodycheck, it was nearly impossible. Watch some old games.
