THE TRADE! Over 25 years later, in the annals of professional hockey, no incident has resulted in such furor, such angst among Canadians as did the decision by team owner Peter Pocklington to trade Edmonton Oiler Wayne Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings. This book consists of seven chapters as they were originally published in Peter Pocklington's biography "I'd Trade Him Again: on Gretzky, Politics and the Pursuit of the Perfect Deal." These select chapters tell the fascinating story of the flamboyant entrepreneur's tenure of the Edmonton Oilers, from its origins as a WHA team to its heights as an NHL powerhouse.
