NHL Trade Rumors On the: Wayne Gretzky/Red Wings Buzz...

• MLive: In 1988 The Great #99 Wayne Gretzky was traded to the Los Angeles Kings from the Edmonton Oilers.


But History could have been TOTALLY DIFFERENT. Gretzky was on NHL Network and said he was almost certain he'd be a Detroit Red Wings Player the night before the deal. He and his family wanted to go to Detroit due to the market and the Gordie Howe saga. But then Wayne's father told him to create his own legacy in LA, and to not follow up Howe's respectively.


So he did and in a matter of days the deal was done. At the time, the GM of the Oilers was ready to talk to the Red Wings because he knew that's where Gretzky wanted to be, but Wayne changed his mind. Then it didn't take long for the LA General Manager to pay up for #99.
