Barry submitted a take today which I had not previously been exposed to: that Wayne Gretzky, The Great One himself, was perhaps not as great as his reputation suggests because he got to play in an era when hockey goalies really stunk. As a hockey moron, I demanded evidence that could affirm Barry's position, at which point Lauren provided me with this truly wonderful lowlight reel:

Oh man! Look at those clowns! They suck so bad!
