Overview

Whether wearing his Edmonton oil-drop, the black and silver colours of L.A., or the famous Rangers sweater from New York, all hockey fans agree that Wayne Gretzky was the best hockey player of all time. His point totals, his puck control, and the manner in which he conducted himself both on and off the ice reflected the very best of the game.
     You can't talk about Gretzky without talking about his records and achievements: 50 goals in just 39 games, 9 Hart Trophies, 10 Art Ross Trophies, 4 Stanley Cups, 215 points in a single season, and, of course, retiring with 2856 points. Each record is a remarkable achievement by the game's most remarkable player, and each will be broken down in this book.
     Published with Wayne Gretzky's approval and written with his cooperation, this is the Gretzky biography that his fans have so anxiously awaited. Veteran sports journalist Al Strachan has enjoyed an extremely close friendship with Gretzky for well over 25 years, and during this time Strachan has reported on every aspect of his professional career. The two have spent thousands of hours talking about the game and such details as Wayne's move to L.A., managing the 2002 Canadian Olympic team and coaching in Phoenix. Their close friendship has offered each man the opportunity to discuss the game that they both love, and in this book Strachan takes readers on a most remarkable journey and details the life of Wayne Gretzky like it has never been told.

*he runs in and stops the female titan stops following and stops behind him they face each other and the male titan thinks to him self* 'annie, always so cynical like every little thing around you was pointless, nothing without a second look, every now and then i can see through the act, especially when you were showing off your fighting skills, maybe hand to hand combat didnt count for squat back at the academy, but for you it was a different story, yeah about that much at least. Fightings your whole world but what exactly are you fighting for, what could possibly be worth all this death and destruction!!??' *the male titan runs at the female titan and they start fighting, its eren vs annie*

A strong tom padded in. He was gray with blue-green eyes. He gazed around. He was young, but wise and strong. He sat down and waited for the leader to show up. He watche the camp, liking it.
