A King's Ransom

Today in 1988 the sports world was rocked by the trade of "The Great One" Wayne Gretzky from the Edmonton Oilers (who he led to 4 Stanley Cup wins in 5 tries) to the Los Angeles Kings.   He would take or drag the Kings to the top of the league and the 1993 Stanley Cup Final but Canada's national hero was going to try and bring hockey to the sunshine state.

The ESPN 30 for 30 documentary "A King's Ransom" takes an in depth look at this momentous day in hockey history.
