Laraque, oops right. Thanks!
I admit Wayne was not the greatest coach, but to call him "the worst he ever had" I think is unfair. I am sure Laraque had worse in his entire life!
So what was he attempting to accomplish by trash talking Gretzky? I guess to make noise to sell his book. Seems to me all it did was tarnish his reputation.
I think it was classless and uncalled for.
And good on Jermey Roenick for defending Gretzky yesterday on Toronto radio. JR said he was a bad coach and relied on his assistants heavily, but had a bad team (and JR was on that team) and therefore he gives Gretzky a pass.
A much better way to say it.
