Growing up in Canada, I was naturally a hockey fan. And being a hockey fan in Canada in the early-mid '80's meant I was a fan of the man known simply as the "Great One". So, it was with a great deal of interest and excitement I picked up the 2 disk DVD set, "Ultimate Gretzky". This DVD incompases all of Gretzky's greatest pro accomplishments (of which there are far too many to list here), and it is a great idea to have Gretzky talk about his opinion on them, as opposed to the usual comments from teammates, coaches, family and friends (of course those comments are still here). My two complaints about this disk are minor, but I still feel the need to mention them. The first complaint is the complete overlooking of Gretzky's stop in St. Louis. It's true that Gretzky's stay in St. Louis wasn't overly noticable, but to get the full picture it would have been better if there would have been some mention of his time there, as opposed to jumping from Los Angeles to New York. The second complaint I have is much minor and it is based on the timing of the disk. I think that if NHL productions and Warner Brothers (the studios involved) would have held off releasing this disk for a short time, then they could have included the Heritage Classic game between the Edmonton Oiler Allumn and the Montreal Canadian classic stars, a game which Gretzky played in, and a game that most likely will be the last time anyone will ever see Wayne on skates again. It was a missed opportunity, but it's not enough to really complain about. Overall, this is a great disk for anyone who wants to see the GREATEST professional athlete ever, and it's a real tribute to the true Great One!
