    well from what i have been told, here is what happened. wayne initially was going to start playing again this year with the coyotes. he told his wife that he was going to make a comeback the his wife told someone etc, etc, etc and so the word leaked out. since then, wayne has told one of his sons that he may not play now because he is not sure if he's set on it. word is, is that he is very healthy and in game shape ready to go.

    i wouldn't be surprised to see wayne back on the ice this season. he may not either, but right now he's think thinking about it

    thought all you puckheads from our hockey thread would enjoy the news

    He should go back with his original team the Oilers!

    It would be cool to see Wayne play again though. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'm not sure if he can actually play again.

    His last season (98-99), he basically was suffering some injuries and he lost a lot of step in his game.

    He knew it was time to go and he made the right choice before it got embarassing.

    Now, three years off may have done something but I still think Gretz is done.

    If he did come back, would he be able to take the pounding or would most guys back off because he is the greatest hockey player ever? Lemieux tried it and was somewhat successful until an injury cut that short. Same with Jordan.

    Would that make Wayne and Gordie Howe the only players, to be in the Hall, and playing in the NHL ?

    One thing, it sure would put people in the seats.

    Gretzky has earned the right to do whatever he wants. If he comes back it will no doubt be with the Coyotes and considering that Phoenix has a pretty decent team it would end up being a successful return. Even in his last year with the Rangers he still led his team in scoring. I'm not convinced he's going through with it but it's fun thinking about it.

    They always did back off..Gretzky was an NHL meal ticket and most of the players understood that. I saw the Great One at his restaurant here in Toronto before the taping of the Mike Bullard show. He was a well spoken, confident guy. It was amazing to see him in person.

    I can never forgive Gretzky for calling the Devils a "Mickey Mouse Organization".

    OK, so it was before NJ was any good, but it still wasn't very nice.

    i think it would be interesting, but i don't see it happening either.
    still, he is undoubtedly the greatest player ever.
