The Malik Report

According to Fox Sports Detroit, Wayne Gretzky offered an interesting answer to Fox Sports’ Dan Patrick when asked the following question:
Wayne Gretzky is a big fan of the Detroit Red Wings’ Euro Twins. In fact, if he could come back to the game as one of its current stars—Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin excluded—Gretzky says it would be as either Henrik Zetterberg or Pavel Datsyuk.
“The two guys I love, and you can pick the guy you want, but I love Zetterberg and I love Datsyuk,” Gretzky said in response to the “Second Coming” question posed by Dan Patrick on his TV/radio show (as seen on FOX Sports Detroit) Wednesday morning. “I think they play hard, they play properly, they’re unselfish, they’re winners, and they play the game with a great deal of work ethic. I don’t care how good you are as an athlete, I really admire the superstars, the talented guys who really work hard, and the guys who go every night and push themselves to another level.”

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
