I don't know why this piece of Gretzky's "wisdom" is so often cited as if it is revelatory. Most animals try to "skate to where the puck will be," whatever that may mean for a given creature. Otherwise, they would never be able to move, eat, etc. To me, this is as academic as saying, "Well, you see, my secret is shooting the puck between the uprights and under the crossbar."KInd of reminds me of Gretzky's characterization of his approach to hockey when asked.."How do you explain why you're always in the right position to score or assist on a play..Right place/right time.?" He said he tried to not to be where the puck is/was but rather where he thought it was going to be/end up. Thinking ahead .
Sports IQ on another level. Different sport but similar concept. Dav was the same way.
Not picking on you personally.
