Come on man! Gretzky has four years of coaching ANYTHING PERIOD. Ireland has been coaching a long time. Ireland took over a god-awful, fifty loss team that had failed to qualify for the post-season for years(since their first season in existance, actually) and brought them to the playoffs, right away, in his first full year as head coach. That was just season before last. Last season, they started of TERRIBLE, but bounced back, regained their form and put together a solid second half. I believe they had thirty six wins and thirty eight losses by the time it was all said and done.
