Couple of side notes i want to mention first. 1- Not the biggest hockey fan, never watched an NHL Game. 2- I will still try my best to argue this
Now on with the Debate
Cant argue the Hulls, i will agree with them
You made a pretty strong case for the patricks, i am going to agree there as well.
But for us non Hockey Fans there is one player that always stands out. 1 guy that was the Jordan of Hockey. A guy that dominated and won a lot of titles. Had video games named after him and brought new fans to the sport.
How can you leave this guy off?
Dont Argue that his family is not one of the most popular hockey families because Gretzky is one of the Greatest Hockey Players of All Time, if not thee greatest.
