Last year, while filming a series of sit-downs with celebrity hockey fans, Wayne Gretzky would warn his guest that he was still learning how to conduct interviews. "I can be interviewed all day long and it doesn't bother me," Gretzky says. "It's not as easy to ask the questions."
This year, taping a four-part podcast for NHL Studios, he was less nervous—partly thanks to that past experience, but also because he was talking about a subject he knows well: winning a Stanley Cup. Gretzky and his guests—Mark Messier, Luc Robitaille, Martin St. Louis and T.J. Oshie—discuss playoff memories and what it's like to win it all. "By no means am I Doc Emrick," Gretzky says, "but Doc Emrick can't skate like I can."
