and i just gotta laugh honestly about the whole gretzky thing.

i mean come on, wayne was, on many occasions throughout his amazing career, the mother of all "cherry pickers" and no one would ever confuse wayne with a true 2 way player. not even close.

all this talk about lisin being one dimensional and all. wasnt the great one fairly one dimensional.
Yes, Gretzky was one-dimensional. When he played, his team had the puck and was putting it into the other guy's net. If only the Rangers could acquire a one-dimensional player.

This whole bull about being used properly is funny. Great players will shine no matter how they are used. This notion that they can be held back is garbage. Any coach, and I mean every coach, will play the players that produce. No matter what you may think of them, they have an overwhelmingly better and more-informed opinion than the fans.
