Gretzky on MLSE: "We chatted"
« on: November 09, 2014, 10:06:52 AM »
In an interview with Strombo Saturday night, Grerzky admitted that he did indeed cionsider the Leafs presidency at one point:

Gretzky admitted hed spoken with Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Tim Leiweke last spring about becoming president of the hockey team.

"I can finally admit that we chatted," said Gretzky. "It just wasnt the right thing for them and for me. Tim Leiweke is a wonderful man and the organization is a good organization. And listen, I grew up a huge Toronto Maple Leafs fan. At one point I almost signed here in 1996, but you know, sometimes things just happen for a reason and it just didnt work out."

"Brendan Shanahan is a wonderful man and hes a good person and I think hes going to do a wonderful job," said Gretzky.

Agreed. Still hard to believe that happened.
