Thats an excellent suggestion in Bob Gainey, and I believe it was MayorBee who on the thread discussing such an office suggested Paul Kelly, which is also an interesting possibility... and no, I wasnt suggesting that Gretzky wouldnt draw in sponsors or whatever, no, what Im saying is I dont believe he has by vocation or aptitude the requisite skillsets to act as an Ombudsman, though he may have learned much after his experiences in Phoenix, getting stiffed by the NHL & Moyes to the tune of about $7M. Its possible that after such a disappointment, disillusionment really, that he'd be more open to actually vocalizing his opinions, sticking up publicly for one side or the other in any given dispute instead of being a puppet, under the thumb of the league itself, always minding his 'P's & Q's as he did as a player.
