Wiretaps show Gretzky Exhonorated

From the Vancouver Sun (click the post title for the link). It now appears that Wayne Gretzky was telling the truth - he had no prior knowledge of the Rick Tocchet - New Jersey gambling ring. The wiretap that recorded Wayne inquiring about his wife occured after New Jersey detectives showed up at his door in Phoenix asking to talk to Janet. Further, it appears that even his wife Janet Jones-Gretzky did nothing wrong. She placed a bet and won some money betting on the SuperBowl (just as I predicted). It is not illegal to place bets, but it is illegal broker gambling transactions. All of those people prematurely demanding Gretzky's resignation from the Canadian Olympic team need to swallow hard and take a deep breath.
