Gretzky on the playoffs so far...

Interesting that he should say this, and I completely agree:

"They talk about the Flyers back in the '70s –guys like Bobby Kelly, 'Moose' Dupont and Dave Schultz - but you never really saw those guys go after guys like Bobby Orr or Mario Lemieux or Phil Esposito. It was just sort of honest, hard, rough-nosed hockey, and it's changed - there's no question - the players are bigger and faster and stronger today than they were when we played, and obviously there's a lot at stake playing for a Stanley Cup, and emotions are definitely really high and subsequently you're going to have issues."

What we're seeing now is not "old-time hockey". It's nothing like the game used to be, even back it's rougher days.

PS: Don't think any of the Flyers he mentioned ever had a chance to go after Mario, but whatever. We get the idea.
