Faces of Gretzky
The lack of a playoff berth in any of Gretzky’s seasons in Phoenix is generally mentioned early in many of the articles. The accompanying photos used on the home pages or in the articles often portrayed frustration or an angered Gretzky behind the bench.
Here’s a quick look at today’s photos:

Unemotional behind the bench (which he certainly was not most of the time).
Frustrated behind the bench (which he certainly was most of the time).
Thoughtful behind the bench.

Just a little gumpy behind the bench. Gumpier in the photo used on the NHL home page on SI.

From the Puck Daddy blog, not the main story, which has no photo, but a video thumb. This was a familiar Gretzky pose. He was not shy about letting the refs know what he was thinking.
