Howe, Gretzky conduct 20 questions on Howe's career

Tuesday, 10.21.2014 / 12:51 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

"Mr. Hockey: My Story," the new memoir by all-time hockey great Gordie Howe, hit the shelves Oct. 14. Howe, 86, has a form of dementia and is not doing media interviews to promote the book. However, the Canadian publisher of "Mr. Hockey" has provided the text of a Q & A between Howe and Wayne Gretzky, which was conducted by email in September. Gretzky, a close friend of the Howe family, wanted to be involved in the book's release. Gretzky and an editor worked together to come up with the questions for the interview, the only one Howe will do to promote the book. Marty Howe, Gordie's son, transcribed his father's answers. This interview first appeared in several Canadian outlets earlier this month.

Order the book now at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

WAYNE GRETZKY: In your memoir you write about participating in the puck-drop ceremony for the 2014 Winter Classic alumni game at Comerica Park. Could you tell me a little bit about playing outdoors as a child? What was your local rink like? What's your fondest memory of playing outside?

GORDIE HOWE: I loved playing hockey and looked forward to getting on the ice. If I wasn't home eating I was on the ice skating all winter. The rink was just boards and ice. In the Depression there was no money to do much — I think we were lucky there was man-made ice to skate on. I don't know that any memory stands out as the fondest, but I always liked to score and loved to win. That was what I lived for.

Fantasy top 100 forwards: Emerging trios by the slice

Tuesday, 10.21.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen will provide you with in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top 100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen will be your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.

It's tough to order pizza by the pie in fantasy hockey. Grabbing a slice is much more realistic.

Because of frequent changes to forward combinations and injuries over the course of the regular season, it's always tough to land an under-the-radar point pair, let alone all three pieces of an emerging line. But, in many cases, one slice of the pie can be satisfying.

Three examples have come into fruition over the first two weeks of this season. Each of these trios was either underrated or unlikely entering the season, but has meshed so well that each component has turned into a commodity. The quicker you land a piece of one of these trios, either via trade or the waiver wire, the quicker your team can reap the benefits.
