"The Great One's" greatness on the ice cannot be challenged. If Gretzky had never scored a goal, he would be the all-time points leader. He netted a record 92 goals in the 1980-1981 season and tallied an NHL best 215 points in 1985-1986. Behind the bench, however, Gretzky wasn't so great.
After retiring from the NHL, Gretzky grabbed a 10 percent ownership of the Phoenix Coyotes. Five years later, he became the team's head coach.
While at the helm, Gretzky missed the playoffs in four consecutive years. He never finished better than fourth in the Pacific Division (which is only comprised of five teams) and only put together a winning season once.
Wayne finished 143-161-24 in four years as head coach, and the Coyotes filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009.
