I heard Don Cherry say it on Coaches Corner long before I heard Gretzky say it. For all his craziness, Cherry was a smart hockey guy, and I wouldn't be surprised if that statement is an old school belief that guys from Cherry's era had too. I think its only been given to Wayne because its Wayne Gretzky and its easier to convince people that this particular philosphy is best if the best player of all time said it, as opposed to a smart former coach who is just as recognized for being a controversial windbag.
