Wayne Pulling For Ducks

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

Gretzky is cheering for the Ducks, mostly because of location, location, location in terms of the Coyotes. But there also is his legacy.
“Oh yeah. I think all of us who were around back then see the Ducks as a success of our group. It came at the same time as the Disney movie Mighty Ducks and Mr. Eisner of the Disney Corporation came to all our games,” said Gretzky, who spends the off season in Southern California.
“The sport has grown an awful lot in the southwest and the Ducks getting to the final and winning the Stanley Cup would only help.”
It’s one thing for a California team to have all the stars, moons and planets lined up and to knock on the door every once in a while, but the door needs to be knocked down, said No. 99.
