I have always said that the greatest in any sport is the person who inspired the record holders to challenge the record books. Gretzky the owner of the NHL record books once said that he wanted to be Gordie Howe. As a kid Gretzky asked his barber for a Gordie Howe haircut, that’s how special that man was to him. Howe inspired a generation to be great, making him the great one.
RIP Gordie Howe
