High Praise From The Great One

from the TSN.ca staff:

“He scores big goals when you need to score big goals for your team,” he told TSN’s Gord Miller. “He’s a winner, he’s won a Stanley Cup and a gold medal. He’s a special player.” 

While acknowledging his natural abilities, The Great One attributes Crosby’s success to his incredible drive and the great example he has sitting in the Penguins owner’s box. 

“We all know how talented he is and how good he is but to me it’s his work ethic,” Gretzky said. “He’s the hardest working guy in the league and that’s why he’s the best player in the game. He’s got the right guy Mario there in Pittsburgh, he’s got a tremendous leader right in front of him.”

Wouldn’t it be interesting to have Gretsky coaching Crosby?
