Wayne Gretzky acknowledges that his decision to coach the Phoenix Coyotes initially may have fans spending a little too much time looking to see what's happening on the bench. But Gretzky was just as quick to note that you can't take your eyes off the ice – which, in the case of the Coyotes, shouldn't be much of a problem because Phoenix figures to ice the most competitive team in club history. "You know, ultimately, people are gonna watch the players," Gretzky said after signing on as coach. "Players are the guys people pay to see and pay to watch. ... The focus is the hockey team and everything that goes with that."
