IT LOOKS AS THOUGH GRETZKY IS ON HIS WAY BACK TO NEW YORK

By STEVE SIMMONS, TORONTO SUN

COULD WAYNE Gretzky be returning to the New York Rangers? Could be.

Whispers are abound in hockey circles indicating that Gretzky will terminate his association with the Phoenix Coyotes in the near future to join the Rangers as club president.

The move of Gretzky to New York, should it happen, will coincide with the likely retirement of Glen Sather (who has really already retired but hasn't bothered to inform anyone).

Gretzky would get an opportunity in New York that he wouldn't have in Phoenix: To build a team from scratch with unlimited resources. It is an enticing situation, with the NHL forest full of free agents who will looking for work when the league resumes play.

The Rangers are just one of several teams re-evaluating their front office structure and looking to make changes when the league gets back to playing games.

This doesn't make sense. Especially when his family is in California.

Yes, Gretz would have to sell his part ownership in PHX to work for any other franchise. Same reason why Mario can't play for any team other than the Pens.
