Vote: Will Wayne Gretzky be a great coach?

Wayne Gretzky set records on the ice during his NHL career and helped build the Canadian team that took home gold in the 2002 Winter Olympics, but is hockey's Great One taking on his biggest challenge yet by stepping behind the bench for the Phoenix Coyotes?

Great players like Larry Robinson, Larry Bird and Mike Ditka have become great coaches, but the sporting landscape is also littered with great players who couldn't translate those skills to the sideline.

Will Gretzky succeed? And why is he coming back to the day-to-day grind of an NHL season?
