Gretzky talks about Kopitar:

Darren Pang: I was thinking about so many great young players, we obviously know about Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby, are there other guys that you like watching so far, that maybe haven't caught your eye in the west but that you're looking forward to see develop?

Gretzky: Well, I think that, uhm, those two guys are really special. And I think it's great for the game that we have those two guys. The guy that I really think that doesn't get as much credit, maybe as time goes on he'll get a lot more recognition, but, Kopitar in Los Angeles. I just happen to think that this guy is a horse, plays the game the right way, plays hard every shift, a wonderful young man, and I think he has an outstanding future. So, unfortunately for us, we see him 8 times, but I think he's up there amongst the best young guys in the game.

Coming from The Great One...
