Great one leaves the Copper State

According to my news this morning, the Great One (Wayne Gretzky for the unwashed) has left his job coaching the Phoenix Coyotes. He attributes it to the Coyotes possibly changing ownership, but I think this is him stepping away from a team he never had success with, and a career he was poorly suited for. 143 wins, 161 losses. So much the better - I prefer to remember him for all the good hockey he played, and not the horrible hockey he coached.

Truth be told - does he even have to work???
I'm with you, I like to remember him as the hockey giant he once was.
