Californian Gives Gretzky a Hard Check

April 10, 1993

So Wayne Gretzky says: "There's a big difference between Canada and the United States. A lot of people in Canada know what the Norris Division is and the Smythe Division. People in California don't have a clue what it is."

Well, this Californian has more than a clue. This Californian knows what the Norris and Smythe Divisions are. This Californian even knows what the Patrick and Adams Divisions are. And this Californian is wondering if, in its rush to make hockey more "user-friendly," the NHL is embarking on a path that will destroy the heart and soul of this truly wonderful and breathtaking sport.

No, Wayne, it isn't that Californians don't have a clue, it's that the league doesn't get it.
