Becoming a dad has helped brighten Nolan’s disposition. Nolan could be crabby at times—he once had a memorable conversation with Al Iafrate in which each player claimed he was moodier than the other—and that rubbed some teammates in San Jose and Toronto the wrong way. Coyotes Coach Wayne Gretzky was aware of that reputation but said the opposite has been true in Phoenix.
