Over the last few weeks fans voted on the greatest teams in NHL history. Last night before the Preds/Pens game 4, the 1984/85 Oilers were named as the greatest team EVER.
When asked about teammates Jari Kurri, who had 71 goals that season, and Defenseman Paul Coffey, who had over 120 points on his way to a Norris Trophy, Gretzky said “We had a love for the game. The three of us loved being at the rink. We loved playing and we loved practicing. I think from Mark Messier, to Glenn Anderson, to Coffey, to Kevin Lowe, to Kurri, we showed up for practice. We practiced hard.”
The best part was Wayne’s unexpected guest Charles Barkley!!!
After the press conference, The Great One decided to meet some of Nashville’s finest!
