Well the new ESPN documentary called "Kings Ransom" made it's debut tonight at 8:00 pm EST. It was a film created by Peter Berg, and it chronicled the infamous trade which changed the game and the face of hockey in the United States. I thought it was really well made, and very interesting to watch. Our friend Glen Sather made numerous appearances during interviews and past footage that was shown. Anyone see the film? And if so, thoughts? http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=4532506&categoryid=2378529

The Phoenix Coyotes saga took another dramatic turn on Thursday, as Wayne Gretzky has stepped down from his post as the team's head coach. "This was a difficult decision that I've thought long and hard about," Gretzky said in a statement. "We all hoped there would be a resolution earlier this month to the Coyotes ownership situation, but the decision is taking longer than expected. Since both remaining bidders have made it clear that I don't fit into their future plans, I approached General Manger Don Maloney and suggested he begin looking for someone to replace me as coach. Don has worked hard and explored many options. I think he has made an excellent choice, and so now it's time for me to step aside."

"Mr. Gretzky is actively working with Ice Edge Team LLC and Ice Edge Arena LLC (together, the `Ice Edge Group') who may become the eventual owners of the team," said a brief the NHL filed in support of its own bid for the bankrupt club. "We have been working with Wayne very closely throughout this process," said Ice Edge CEO Daryl Jones. "If we are successful, and we expect to be, he will have a major role in the Coyotes."

"In my heart of hearts, I hope one day Hamilton will have a franchise. They could definitely support a franchise. Everyone knows that. I don’t think anybody could question that. "Eventually, I’m sure Mr. Balsillie is going to acquire a franchise and live out his dream of putting a team in Hamilton. We just don’t know when that’s going to be."

Shawn Thornton – I don’t have any (Stanley Cup memories) because I was a Leafs fan and they never got close. I have a memory of Wayne Gretzky clipping Dougie Gilmour (in 1993) and there was no penalty call and then he scored. That was the one that I remember and it isn’t a great one. Whether it was a penalty or not, I was a young kid and I got caught in the Toronto media trap and I was bitching just like everybody else. I haven’t seen the game since then so I don’t even know it was a penalty or not. I think I went to the Skydome to watch that game with my folks and there was a big crowd there and everybody was up in arms. Obviously I couldn’t get tickets to Maple Leaf Gardens because they cost too much (money).

Shawn Thornton's memory is almost perfect down to going to the SkyDome to watch game seven. It's not the media trap it's the truth. Poor guy got screwed along with the rest of us. Glove tap to Cornelius.

Wayne Gretzky almost certainly will be out as coach of the Phoenix Coyotes, should the NHL defeat BlackBerry king Jim Balsillie in an AZ bankruptcy court today. One of the apparent conditions of sports magnate Jerry Reinsdorf's lowball offer to purchase the bankrupt Coyotes is to end the multimillion-dollar relationship with The Great One.

"We tried to keep it out of our locker room as much as we could. Going into the All-Star break, it was pretty exciting and there was a real strong buzz. Not to make any excuse, but it sort of seeped into the locker room. Some of the guys we traded, players looked at it, like, ‘What’s going to happen here? Are we going to be here?’ It creeps into the locker room. "If you look at history of teams that have gone through it: Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Ottawa, it eventually effects them on the ice."

"In 1984, [Rod] Langway finished second to Wayne Gretzky in Hart trophy balloting. The Hart trophy goes to the league's MVP. Imagine that - in an era dominated by mindboggling offense and The Great One, a defensive d-man was considered by many to be the league's most valuable player."
