Some might call it karma. Pocklington to be sentenced Aug 9, 2010

August 9, 2010: The date that former Edmonton Oilers owner Peter Pocklington will be sentenced after pleading guilty to perjury charges in a California court today.

August 9, 1988: Peter Pocklington trades Wayne Gretzky to the LA Kings.



Karma.

Karma sure comes up a lot these days. I offer Psalm 73 for a more complete thought experiment.

Time to get over that whole Gretzkey trade thing. Twas over 20 frickin years ago for crying out loud...and they say women hold unreasonable grudges. :P

The Gretzke trade ranks right up there with the NEP. Never to forgotten or forgiven.

Anyone think Wayne will visit Pock in jail, lol.

Doesn't the name Gainers mean anything?

Canada should demand he serve his sentence in Canada (parole or jail time)

Peter Puck is a citizen after-all; there is a Canadian abroad suffering the fickle fate of US justice.

Come on Liberals and other assorted lefties! Where are you?

the great one engineered that trade
so his wife could further her "acting" career.

That's pretty good.. I hadn't seen anyone pick up on that.

Poor Peter.

Maybe he can pick up some lessons from Bruce McNall in prison etiquette.

Free Peter Pocklington!

Bring him home now Mr. Harper.
