From the flip side, things look bleak to Gretz

Gretzky: Common man doesn't relate to astronomical salaries paid to athletes

It's a little strange to hear GRETZKY, of all people, complaining about salaries, considering he pretty much started it all by accepting the $8M/year deal LA offered him when he was traded from Edmonton... but I'm willing to put that aside, and say, hell yeah I agree with him and I hope him and people like him succeed in restoring sanity to the NHL.
