Wayne Gretzky was almost traded to the Detroit Red Wings or Philadelphia Flyers back in 1988.
Gretzky ended up being dealt from Edmonton to Los Angeles instead, but for a moment, he thought he'd be joining the Red Wings. "In the end, we got down to three teams," Gretzky said. "Mr. Snider was a good friend of mine and Philadelphia was involved, and Detroit Red Wings — and of course I grew up a Gordie Howe fan and loved Gordie Howe and the Red Wings — and the Los Angeles Kings were involved. I really felt 24 hours beforehand that I was going to end up a Detroit Red Wing. "Both Janet (his wife) and I thought that was the perfect place to go because A, it was a great hockey city, B, because of Gordie and everything that goes with that. And it was really my dad that stepped in and said, ‘You know, there’s only one Gordie Howe. Detroit’s Detroit, they’ve done everything." Aug 22 - 9:51 AM
