Asked if what has transpired over the first few weeks of the season has made team ownership doubt Gretzky's coaching ability, CEO Jeff Shumway, who said he was speaking for himself and majority owner Jerry Moyes, said: "Absolutely not. In fact, I think it's exactly the opposite . . . The more I've gotten to know Wayne, the more I appreciate his great knowledge and his ability to handle the players and his ability to communicate with them." Gretzky, of course, also owns part of the team. ...A team source said the Coyotes are exploring signing an unsigned veteran center - presumably Jason Allison or Yanic Perrault - to fill in for Steven Reinprecht, who will miss the next seven weeks or so because of a broken clavicle.
