I can't even imagine what question he would be asked in an interview or press conference that would elicit such a response.
Personally, I think it's on the same level as "George Washington never told a lie". It's something that parents tell their kids to inspire them, and they drop Gretzky's name to add a little credibility to it.
It's also strange to be unable to find a quote for someone who:
- Is still alive
- Was active during the Internet era
- Is extremely prominent within his particular world
