Gretzky Praises Refs

from the Arizona Republic,
Coach Wayne Gretzky on Wednesday gave a public pat on the back for the way NHL officials have called penalties in the first four weeks of the season. "I really, truly believe that the finesse and the smarts and the intelligence of hockey players now, both offensively and defensively, is a factor," Gretzky said. "If you're not a good skater and you can't handle the puck or you're not a smart defenseman, you no longer can play in the National Hockey League and you'll be an American Hockey League player. And that's the way it should be."
