This is something I read form Al Strachan's new book, I think its called "8 goals that changed the game". In this book he talks about a car accident that Guy Lafleur got into in '81 and how the car flipped over. I'm not sure if this is the same accident that changed Lafleurs career and forced him to slow down but according to Strachan the accident, which was a big secret, had a passenger in it named Wayne Gretzky. Something that never has come out in public. My question is that if this is true then why were they in the same car? They weren't teammates. All I can think is that it was in the '81 Canada Cup when they were teammates. Does anyone know of this if it is true or not?
