2021-22 Arizona Coyotes
William Grigsby - Nov 4, 2021

The 2021-22 Arizona Coyotes are setting all kinds of futility records as they embark on their rebuild. Will it guarantee a top draft pick? The way the team has started this season has certainly shown that the team is going to be in the running for a top draft pick if their level of play […]

Phil Kessel
William Grigsby - Oct 30, 2021

There’s some debate that because the Tampa Bay Lightning lost their star forward Nikita Kucherov to another injury, the team needed to fill that void. While he isn’t expected to be out for 56 games like last season, it is not a short-term injury. Therefore, the team needs to decide to stand pat or attempt […]

Conor Garland
William Grigsby - Oct 28, 2021

We all remember that fateful day on July 23rd when the Arizona Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks conducted a huge trade. Both teams were motivated to rid themselves of contracts. Caught in the crossfire was popular forward Conor Garland. His meagre contract of just $775,000 was inconsequential. To make the deal work for Arizona and to […]

2021-22 Arizona Coyotes
William Grigsby - Oct 23, 2021

The 2021-22 Arizona Coyotes season has not started out too well. The expectations may have been low due to an intense rebuild. Losing is never fun. All the changes to the roster have contributed to their losing ways. Starting out with a 0-3-1 record will not bring many fans to the arena. But, things could […]

Arizona Coyotes goalie situation
William Grigsby - Oct 17, 2021

It may be very early in the new 2021-22 NHL season, but the Arizona Coyotes goalie situation is looking bright. Newcomer Karel Vejmelka made his NHL debut, and it was quite something to see. In the team’s second contest this season, Vejmelka stopped 32 of 33 shots in a tight defensive battle against the Buffalo […]

Arizona Coyotes 2021-22 season
William Grigsby - Oct 12, 2021

Everyone knows that the Arizona Coyotes 2021-22 season may not be a huge success. It never is when you’re going through a rebuild/tanking process. Yet, general manager Bill Armstrong and new head coach Andre Tourigny are hoping that with 19 players on contracts ending after this new season, the motivation to stick around can be […]

Phil Kessel
William Grigsby - Oct 7, 2021

Phil Kessel has made it clear that his days in Arizona are coming to an end. He has a favourable contract with a $1 million real cost against his $6.8 million cap hit since his $5 million bonus has been paid by the Coyotes. He possesses an eight-team list of destinations he’d prefer. So, where […]

Arizona Coyotes 2021-22 preseason
William Grigsby - Oct 3, 2021

former arizona coyotes players
William Grigsby - Sep 30, 2021

The Arizona Coyotes did a huge roster purge over the summer. Gone were Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Conor Garland, and Michael Bunting. Both OEL and Garland landed with the Vancouver Canucks with the Coyotes receiving the 9th overall selection in this years draft. The Yotes chose forward Dylan Guenther who has played well in the pre-season. So […]

With a little over a quarter of the season behind us, teams are starting to get a good idea of where their team is at and where they should be in the future. The Dallas Stars, probably a bit, to everyone’s surprise, have found themselves at the top of the Central Divison for most of […]

Tommy Bennett - Sep 28, 2021

For the longest time dating back to the early 1990s, the New Jersey Devils have been known for their goaltending. Play between the pipes led by Martin Brodeur helped capture three Stanley Cups and long-term success for the franchise. But ever since his retirement, the solution between the crease has been inconsistent. As we all […]
