Wayne Gretzky Impressed with Sens

http://www.ottawasun.com/2013/01/23/...ttawa-senators

SUNRISE, Fla. The Great One predicts Ottawa hockey fans could be in for a treat this season.

After denying rumours he's about to become president of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Wayne Gretzky told Hockey Night in Canada radio Wednesday he's been impressed with the way the Senators have been playing early this year.

"The team that I am pleasantly surprised with, and how good they're playing and how much depth and talent they have for a young group, is the Ottawa Senators," said Gretzky from Los Angeles.

"I'm really impressed by how they're playing and how they've started. They are strong on the puck, solid defensively. They could be a big surprise. It could be a fun year for the people of Ottawa."

Gretzky noted before making the comments that people have been talking about Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings and the Minnesota Wild "making a big splash," but he's liked the Senators thus far.

Gretzky the coach who had a hand in drafting Turris.

Janet is probably throwing down some crazy vegas cash on the sens now.

Rick Tocchet better get his bookie game back in shape.

I bet Gretz regrets steering poor Justin Schultz to the Oilers.

Besides finishing last and taking no-brainer picks, and getting Eberle and Schultz, every other move their incompetent management makes backfires.

It is obvious they will never put together a great team, and will somehow bungle the wealth of young talent they have.

Maybe Gretzky will take to Schultz having made a mistake and we will trade bishop for schultz

Great to have someone like Gretzky supporting us. He's right, we're going to be a good club this year.

They are awful at drafting. Their first overall picks hide it though.

Double whammy for TML. First he turns down the job (at least I hope he did) and now he is praising the Sens.

Ottawa fans were extremely classy to 99 during his last game - especially considering how that Ottawa was fighting for an improved playoff seeding. So it wouldn't surprise me if Wayne had a special place in his heart for the Sens.

Having said that, he seems to be spot on with his assessment of this (young & exciting) club.

I'll wait to see results after playing stiffer competition before I get too excited. I think the D might get exposed against the penguins so Anderson is going to have an even better game.

Klefbom, Marincin and Gernat look pretty good too. They're not a great drafting team but they're not the worst either. Gotten better the last few seasons.

Pretty sure his last game was against Pittsburgh.

Yup. The Oilers have drafted a few good players outside the first round that seem to be neglected outside Edmonton.
