Now back to Wayne Gretzky…

Since Gretzky has quit the Phoenix Coyotes, the team has picked up former Dallas Stars coach Dave Tippett. In a statement made on his website Gretzky explains:

“This was a difficult decision that I’ve thought long and hard about. We all hoped there would be a resolution earlier this month to the Coyotes ownership situation, but the decision is taking longer than expected. Since both remaining bidders have made it clear that I don’t fit into their future plans, I approached General Manger Don Maloney and suggested he begin looking for someone to replace me as coach. Don has worked hard and explored many options. I think he has made an excellent choice, and so now it’s time for me to step aside.”
