Another Check Off in the “God is Dead” List

20 Years Ago: Gretzky deal shocked the hockey world

In Edmonton, fans marched to Northlands Coliseum burning Pocklington in effigy. Tabloid papers grilled The Great One, calling him a traitor and dubbing his wife, ‘Jezebel Janet’ amid their own speculation that he engineered the deal to move to Hollywood to further her acting career. ‘The Trade’ even made it to Question Period at the House of Commons, as NDP House Leader Nelson Riis demanded that the Mulroney government block it from happening.

“At the time I was doing it, I don’t think I really got it,” said former Kings owner Bruce McNall, who helped orchestrate the trade.”

That one sentence stains this guy as an abject idiot for the rest of his life. He’s in trade negotiations for the King of Canada; Slayer of the Islanders, and he didn’t “get it” about how humongous this deal was?

And proof OF SATAN BEING IN CHARGE? They traded him to the goddamned Kings, who totally sucked even when they had Rogie Vachon.
