Muse: A Glimpse into the Future Greatness of Gretzky

All the talk today about the 25th anniversary of the Gretzky trade to L.A. reminds me of the first time I saw him play hockey in the early 70’s. He was just a kid then, playing in the finals of the Burlington Golden Horseshoe Tournament. He scored 8 or 9 goals, had a handful of assists and completely dominated the game until another kid took him out with a hip check. They said he’d be the next Bobby Orr and they were right! Nice to see that occasionally, the truth does live up to all the hype.
