EDMONTON - Peter Pocklington, the man who launched the Edmonton Oilers dynasty, then loathed for decades for trading Wayne Gretzky, welled up with tears Friday when he came home to a standing ovation.Thank you Edmonton. Thank you, said Pocklington as a full house of fans at Rexall Place stood and cheered him at a reunion celebration of the 1984 Oilers team that won the teams first Stanley Cup.I wasnt sure what was going to happen, said Pocklington. He then paused and added, As you can imagine.Paul Coffey, who played for the Oilers from 1980-1987, was impressed with the crowds reaction. What just happened proved the people of Edmonton have a lot of class, Coffey said.Pocklington, 72, told the crowd that when he owned the Oilers he likened it to what he learned while walking one day past a field in France.There were men working in a field, he said, patiently and laboriously chipping away at stone blocks.One by one, said Pocklington, he asked the men what they were doing.Carving designs into the rock, they told him.Until he got to one final rock chipper, the only one who saw not the task, but the goal.I said: What are you doing? And he said Why, Im building a cathedral, said Pocklington.And this is what we wanted our team to do in this city, build a cathedral.Five cathedrals later, we had it done, he said to another round of applause.Pocklington, an entrepreneur from Ontario who made his first fortune selling cars, bought the Oilers when they were still in the old World Hockey Association.In 1978, he snapped up and signed teenage hockey wunderkind Wayne Gretzky from the Indianapolis Racers.A year later the Oilers and three other WHA teams joined the NHL.By 1984 Gretzky was the nucleus of a wildly talented group of kids who had taken the NHL by storm with their free-flowing criss-crossing European style of hockey.They lost in the Stanley Cup final in 1983 but the next year they won it all, and won four more championships by decades end.This week, old teammates returned for a 30th-year reunion, marching Friday night to bagpipes, clad in their Oiler jerseys and holding aloft the Stanley Cup.Gretzky, the NHLs all time leading scorer, was joined on stage by teammates including Coffey, Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, Glenn Anderson, Grant Fuhr.Earlier in the week, Pocklington said he debated long and hard about whether he should come at all. Writers on local social media gave him some free advice: stay home.One newspaper ran an online poll on whether Pocklington should be booed. Two thirds said yes.To them, the man known as Peter Puck will always be the one who sold Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings in 1988 for $18M Cdn.The Gretzky sale came after the Oilers had won four cups and were only getting stronger.The sale was a gut punch to Edmonton. Diehards burned Pocklington in effigy. Radio stations doctored the popular Bobby McFerrin song to soothe a savage fan base (Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh. Dont worry. Waynes Happy Now.)In Ottawa one politician demanded the trade be stopped as Gretzky was a national treasure.Earlier this week, Pocklington kept a low profile during reunion festivities, granting only one interview to a select group of journalists.During it, he reiterated the mantra that the sale was inevitable. Gretzky was a depreciating asset sure to command a stratospherically large contract that could not be sustained, he said.What about the angry masses, he was asked in Wednesdays interview.I dont really give a damn what the unwashed have to say, he replied.It was a fairy tale Stanley Cup run that didnt have a happy ending.Gretzkys departure marked the launch of a star exodus that had actually begun a year earlier, when an unhappy Coffey was traded to Pittsburgh in 1987.After the final cup win in 1990, the players were sold off or traded en masse to cut costs in a league that was seeing the gap widen between the haves and haves not.By 1992 Pocklington threatened to move the team to Hamilton unless he got a better revenue deal on the home rink. By 1997, awash in debt, he sold the team and moved to southern California.There he has continued to dabble in various enterprises while running afoul of the law.Currently he faces possible jail time in the U.S. for violating the terms of his probation stemming from his 2010 admission of perjury in a bankruptcy fraud case.Those troubles still loom.But for one brief moment Friday, a hard-headed businessman and a city that had felt abused and betrayed let bygones be bygones and joined as one to remember the glory of their times. Steve Grogan Womens Jersey . It will mark the 22nd time the tournament has been held in this country and fourth in Atlanta Canada but will make its first appearance ever in played Nova Scotia. Tedy Bruschi Youth Jersey .C. -- Duke sophomore Rodney Hood is entering the NBA draft. . Still, Inter moved one point ahead of Parma in the race for fifth place and the final Europa League spot. Udinese remained 14th, 11 points above the relegation zone. Inter was beaten 2-1 by Atalanta at home on Sunday and has won only seven of 16 matches at the San Siro this season, as the squad seems to still be searching for its identity under new owner Erick Thohir and first-year manager Walter Mazzarri. Martellus Bennett Super Bowl Jersey . Theres little time for rest, too. The Flyers and Rangers play again Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. Simmonds scored in the first period and twice more in the second for his first career post-season hat trick. Mason survived a busy first period and stopping 31 straight shots until Carl Hagelin scored late in the third. Tom Brady Womens Jersey .Corey Brewer had 19 points eight rebounds, five assists and five steals for the Timberwolves, who snapped a six-game losing streak and won for just the third time since Ricky Rubio went out with an injured ankle on Nov.WASHINGTON -- Check two more items off the list in an impressive homestretch by the Boston Bruins. They are now Atlantic Division champions, and Jarome Iginla has recovered from his slow start to reach 30 goals once again. Boston accomplished those feats Saturday against the Washington Capitals, a desperate team whose first and foremost goal -- making the playoffs for a seventh straight season -- looked a bit more distant after Saturdays 4-2 loss. "We need these wins so bad," Washington defenceman Karl Alzner said, "that sometimes you overplay. It can be a big problem that can really mess your game up." And its not a good idea to mess up against the Bruins, who have won 14 of 15 and have allowed only 13 goals over 11 games. Iginla scored twice, and Carl Soderberg added a goal to give Boston a 3-0 lead in the second period, more than enough to hold off a surge from a Washington team that woke up too late. The Bruins had already clinched a playoff spot, so the division title didnt create so much as a celebratory ripple in the locker room. "We dont even talk about that. I wasnt even -- I knew there was something that would happen if we won tonight, but we find out now weve clinched and thats fine," coach Claude Julien said. "Again, weve got an opportunity to do even more than that." Patrice Bergeron added a third-period goal to extend his goal-scoring streak to a career-high six games, and Chad Johnson made 31 saves. Iginla reached the 30-goal mark for the 12th time, a nice comeback after scoring only four in the first 24 games this season. "When you look at the start he had, nobody would have predicted that," Julien said. "But hes a pretty streaky goal-scorer." Iginla now has 10 goals in nine games. "Ive been getting some good bounces lately, and its been a fun year," he said. "Fun to win games and be at the top of the league, and to be on some streaks as a group." Washington began the day tied with Columbus, Detroit and Toronto in what has essentially become a four-way race for two playoff spots, but the Capitals would lose a tiebreaker against all three teams. The Bruins gave the CCapitals top-rated power play only three chances, and they corralled Alex Ovechkin enough to keep the NHLs leading goal scorer in a 5-on-5 slump.dddddddddddd Ovechkin has 48 goals this season, but hasnt scored at even-strength since Feb. 27. The Capitals had no shots on goal in the first 6 minutes and only two after 14 minutes. The game was scoreless after the first period solely because of goalie Braden Holtby, but he could hold down the fort for only so long. A turnover at centre ice allowed Soderberg to spring Iginla for a breakaway that opened the scoring in the second period. A few minutes later, Soderberg redirected an already deflected shot by Bergeron on a power play to make it 2-0, and Iginla made it a three-goal lead by stuffing in his own rebound 41 seconds later. Washington coach Adam Oates said he was "shocked" at how poorly his team started. "I thought our forechecking was lousy," Oates said. When the Capitals finally turned up the intensity, it came from the third line that has led the team in recent weeks. Jason Chimera put Washington on the board with 10 seconds remaining in the second period, and a dominant shift by Chimeras line drew a penalty on Andrej Meszaros in the third. But the Capitals couldnt score during the man-advantage, and soon the Bruins had a power play of their own. With Ovechkin off for charging, Bergeron put in a rebound to restore the three-goal cushion. Oates said the penalty on Ovechkin was a "terrible" call. "I dont like the call, but he called it," Oates said. "He saw something that I dont agree with now, but our job is to kill it." NOTES: Evgeny Kuznetsov scored his second NHL goal in the final minute. ... Capitals D Jack Hillen sat out with an upper-body injury sustained in a collision with Ovechkin during overtime of Tuesdays loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Hillen was replaced by John Erskine, who had been out with a lower-body injury and played for the first time since March 5. ... The Capitals are the last team to beat the Bruins in regulation, a 4-2 win on March 1. Since then, Boston has outscored opponents 54-20 in non-shootout goals.
