Janet, I'll take embarrassing for $1000

This has to be one of the most bizarre sports stories in some time. The wife of the Great One and several NHL players reportedly making bets and Phoenix assistant coach (Wayne's the head coach) Rich Tocchet implicated as the financier for the gambling ring of more than $1 million.

Hockey players gamble? Get out!!

Tocchet is one of two NHL players in history to score more than 400 goals and collect more than 2500 PIM. Now he's running a sports betting syndicate?

And Janet Gretzky is placing sports wagers (hers, of course)? Dang, she is the perfect woman!

The NHL certainly didn't need these shenanigans. It had done a great job to creep out of the hole dug by the missed season. This case is sure to get even more interesting as the details are released. STAY TUNED!

I hate to borrow from Brian McCallum but, of course, Roy Lang III is correct.

The thing is: Who cares?

I invite input from all the NHL fans reading this blog on "Operation Slapshot," as it's being called.

What do you think the impact will be on the league? Nothing? Moving the game broadcasts from the Outdoors Life Network to local public access? Banning the NHL altogether?

Let us know what you think.

I don't care about NHL players betting on college sports, however, Janet Gretzky placing bets while Wayne prefers not to - give me a break!! If I were a reporter and if Janet ever comes out of the house, I would like to ask her who the top two college football teams were this year. Why do I think that would be a difficult question for her?
