I honestly don't think Carcillo was on Gretzky's bad side. Carcillo played on the top lines and the amount of fighting majors where as expected so it didn't look like there was anything unusual. As that's being said, of course I'm not close with Gretzky and don't know what his honest feelings are. I'm just saying this as a hardcore yotes fan.
I've watched some Flyer games when Carcillo was there and he doesn't look as crazy or energetic as he was with Phoenix. It just frustrates me when people say Gretzky is holding him back when I seem him on the Flyers playing differently.
