Phoenix Players Intimidated By Gretzky

from the Arizona Republic,
Brett Hull said Sunday that some of his teammates are letting the fact that Wayne Gretzky is their head coach affect their play. The Coyotes lost six of eight preseason games. "I think everyone has underestimated how intimidated players are reacting to Wayne being there (behind the bench)," Hull said. "Their expectations of themselves have risen, and I think they're having trouble grasping that within themselves. They're nervous and they're playing tight. I think that's going to take some time to wear off."
