Kukla's Korner Hockey

When is the NHL going to repay Gretzky? I brought it up several time in interviews on the 25th anniversary story. All that expansion money owners got when they expanded to Anaheim, San Jose, Florida, Tampa and Nashville, for instance. Thanks, Gretz. But, the thanks goes a little deeper. Gretzky, by reports, is still owed about $8 million in apparently deferred salary from the Phoenix Coyotes when trucking magnate Jerry Moyes walked away, leaving the NHL holding the bag. They idn’t want Blackberry founder Jim Balsillie buying the club and moving it to southern Ontario, and folks like Chicago White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf and businessman Matt Hulsizer looked at the books and backed away.
