being the greatest player in the history of hockey does not equal being even an average coach.

good coaching = identifying a players skills and using those skills properly.

in that sense, and with lisin wayne gets a fail.
Again, this not about coaching. That is changing the parameters of the argument.

Gretzky felt that holding on to Lisin was not important. While mistakes are often made in trades, they are the exception. If you are expecting me to base an opinion of a player on your opinion or a person who saw him every day, I'll take my chances with the other guy over a poster in a chatroom.

Lisin could end up great but if I had a buck for every insanely touted player......
