EDMONTON - What's the Great One have to say about the statue brouhaha?

Ought not the guy the statue represents be asked whether he thinks it should remain in front of the Northlands Coliseum, where he played, or downtown in front of the new Rexall Place, where the Oilers are going to play?

“Whatever they decide is good by me,” said Gretzky Wednesday in an exclusive telephone interview about the debate raging back in Edmonton.

“Having a statue anywhere is a tremendous honour. So, to me, I guess it’s a minor issue.”
