Oct. 5 Random Notes On Our Yotes

If you liked it then share it.

Things about the Arizona Coyotes and the NHL  that crossed my mind this past week –

Some of my thoughts, some info and notes from the past week about our Arizona Coyotes and the National Hockey League.

1.  The Arizona Coyotes begin their 2015-16 season this week with games at L.A. on Friday and their first home game on Saturday night vs Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

2.  Arizona Coyotes line-up is set and this edition of the Arizona Coyotes has a nice mix of youth and veterans AND is in no way going to be as bad as the so-called experts think.    

3.  Welcome to the new members of the Arizona Coyotes and welcome back to a couple of familiar faces.  New to the Arizona Coyotes 23 man roster;  Max Domi, Steve Downie, Anthony Duclair, Stephan Elliot, Nicklas Grossman, Anders Lindback, Jordan Martinook, Brad Richardson, and John Scott …. AND welcome back Boyd Gordon, Zybnek Michalek, and Antoine Vermette. 

4.  AND welcome back a healthy Mikkel Boedker and Martin Hanzal.  Add these two with the newcomers and this is a very different looking team that finished the 2014-15 season.      

5.  Mike Smith is looking to build on a solid last couple of months of the 2014-15 season and an excellent performance for Team Canada at the World Hockey Championships last spring.

6.  IMO the Coyotes organisation gave up too early on Brandon Gormley?  Defencemen do take a while to mature!      

7.  This is my favorite time of year.  Hockey’s regular season is getting underway, upcoming MLB playoffs, NFL going strong and NBA coming soon.  A guy just can’t have enough HD flat screens.              

8.  How did the Yotes get stuck playing in two back to backs to start the season? 

9.  I’m expecting Connor Murphy to take another step forward and become a leader on the Coyotes blueline.       

10.  Arizona Hockey Talk is looking for Arizona Coyotes and ASU Sun Devils writers.  If you or somebody you know is interested, please contact us.


If you have any thoughts on any of these questions please let me know. 

Thanks, Mitch
