Random Thoughts On The Arizona Coyotes: Mar. 16

If you liked it then share it.

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

Some random facts and a few thoughts from this past week about the National Hockey League and our Arizona Coyotes.

1.  The Arizona Coyotes had a 0-2-1 record this week … 1 point!     

2.  The Coyotes are showing a ton of compete but have very little offence in the tank right now.  They are going to be hard pressed to win many hockey games down the stretch unless they are 1-0 victories!  

3.  Mike Smith seems to have worked himself out of whatever was wrong with his game.  He’s been very solid. 

4.  Mark Arcobello has been a pleasant surprise and I wonder if he can make this team next year?  I think he has a shot.  

5.  The Coyotes have only scored 145 goals so far this season and they have given up 230 goals.  Is it any wonder they have seven players with a plus/minus rating of over -20?  

6.  The Arizona Coyotes are 2 points out of 2nd last position in the “Connor McDavid/Jack Eichel Sweepstakes” also known as the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

16 march standings7.  Michael Stone has been playing a lot more physical lately.  I wonder if frustration has set in from all the losing?

8.  I don’t think OEL has played very well since the “All-Star” break.  I know he’s smooth but he looks very nonchalant on the ice lately.

9.  Whatever happened to Justin Hodgman? 

10.  Laurie Korpikoski has been a huge disappointment for me this season and I hope he isn’t given a free pass next training camp because he’s a veteran.  Roster spots MUST to be earned!   

11.  Even though Mike Smith has be very good the past few weeks, I wonder how all this losing affects a goalie’s confidence?  (see #3) 

12.  PP update:  The Arizona Coyotes PP dropped one spot and is now ranked #7 at 20.8%.

13.  PK update:  The Arizona Coyotes PK remained the same this week ranked #26 at 78.0%.


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

Thanks, Mitch
