      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

(Rumour) Gretzky offered job as President of Maple Leafs

Recommended Posts

There is a buzz on twitter right now about Gretzky being considered for the job as president of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Here is the link:

It would be interesting to see him back having a role in the NHL.

Apparently Bob McCown tweets that Wayne Gretzky is not interested. It was discussed on hockey central this morning where it was more likely they would hire a CEO for all of MLSE before Gretzky would consider the job. That source is found on my same link above.

It's amazing how things can get blown out of proportion. I was listening to McCown's show yesterday. They were just tossing around how Gretzky would be a good fit and speculating that MLSE might be interested.

He has not been offered the job, only his name has come up in internal discussions for the position. Gretzky himself said he has not been asked at all.

hockeycentral at noon can also confirm gretzky has not been offered anything or talked to about anything regarding the leafs they don't even have a ceo so that will be step 1 before hiring a president for hockey operations

I can see why TO would want to hire him. They're a media company, and adding a hockey figure such as "the Great One" would generate a lot of buzz.

In HNIC radio interview, Wayne Gretzky says Kings are only NHL team that have contacted him. Adds he doesn't think he is close to...

Returning to NHL in any capacity.

Gretzky did say, however, that it would not be a problem to relocate if a job he wanted required that.

About the house: Gretzky said he sold it five years ago. It's the one Lenny Dykstra bought, which might explains the availability.

Seems more like a PR marketing move to me. Gretzky does have management experience but there are others that are more qualified.

Your right about that. Toronto is such a huge hockey town it's easy for things to get blown out of proportion quickly.

As above poster said, false.

Some one needs to buy The Great One some SPF 100. Holy moly he is always sunburnt!

Gretzky actually publicly addressed this as a bogus rumour
