There is a new daily must-read hockey site - The Dreger Report by TSN's Darren Dreger.
Here's a history related snippet from today's Report: Wayne Gretzky Fantasy Camp IX will be held in Las Vegas next week.
Amongst the participants at this year's event are Chris Chelios, Brian Leetch, Rick Tocchet, Brett Hull, Glen Anderson, Grant Fuhr, Bernie Nicholls, Denis Savard, John MacLean and Mike Keenan.
Ready to help out with all your equipment issues and to provide amazing stories from the Oilers' history including their dynasty days will be Ken Lowe, Barrie Stafford and Sparky Kulchisky, the former training staff for the Edmonton Oilers. All three were let go at the end of last season after three decades of service in Edmonton.
So how much does this Gretzky fantasy camp cost? Just $11,000 US, plus another $1,500 if you want to bring one guest for off-ice experiences. Hey, at least you get to "camp" for 6 days/5 nights at the Bellagio and all meals are included.
It's just money after all (and some of the profits go to charity), and the chance to have a week's worth of one on one time with these hockey legends is priceless. If you'd like to buy me admission to the camp, use the PayPal donation button on the right hand side of this website!
