I read an article posted in the History section, where the author talked to a defensman (who I can't recall) about defending Gretzky. He told a story about Gretzky setting up in his office; he tried to block the pass, and set his skate against the post. Gretzky passed it through the skate to set up a goal. After the game the defenseman sat down with his skate, and slotted a puck through. It barely fit. He said this was a routine occurrence, and Gretzky ended up using the same trick on him a few times; if you gave him the tiniest hole to work with, you were getting beaten more often than not.
