Things just keep getting weirder in Phoenix. The Coyotes have filed for bankruptcy and are begging to move. Now word comes that head coach Wayne Gretzky has yet to make an appearance at training camp. The Great One is still getting his $8 million salary to coach the team, he’s just not coaching the team. According to the Arizona Republic “Assistant coach Ulf Samuelsson is really working, because he has to stand in as acting coach while Gretzky is off doing who knows what.”
And I thought Mario Lemieux was a douche.
Gretzky resigned Thursday. Former Dallas Stars coach Dave Tippett has been named the new head coach of the Phoenix Coyotes.
