Gretzky's ego believing he had the golden touch perhaps a little drunk on his own success. He basically picked a team of players (friends) he had success with and ignored the fact, that some of them just should not have been there... any normal Olympic team should have at least 50% turnover and the average age should be 25-27 years old. So, the lesson 2006 is No Legacy picks!

Now, if MSL is the top scoring right winger on December 15th 2013 and is named to the team, I won't argue... he deserves to be there. I'd certainly take him over Iginla. If he is not, then there are others to consider.
