I had to whip out my thesaurus, because saying “Gretzky thinks Leafs are on the right track” seemed a bit generic. Here’s the all important paragraph:
Fletcher spent nearly six years as an executive with Gretzky’s Phoenix Coyotes before making his return to the Maple Leafs.
Ah, that makes sense. It’s not like there is a conflict of interest there or anything. No personal bias or pressure to say the right things at all. Nope.
In other news, Matt Millen thinks the Raiders looked great last week.
