Random Thoughts On The Arizona Coyotes: Nov. 3

If you liked it then share it.

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

Some of the things that rattled through my head about the NHL and our Arizona Coyotes this past week.

1.  The Arizona Coyotes finished this past week with a 1-3-0 record.  Thoughts? 

2.  Shane Doan scored his 1st goal of the season versus Tampa Bay this past week and added 2 more in a 6-5 win versus Washington on Sunday night.  It was just a matter of time. 

3.  Congrats to Tobias Rieder on his FIRST NHL goal in his FIRST NHL game!  AND it was the GWG!

4.  It’s hard to believe this is the same Coyotes team that defeated the L.A. Kings earlier in October!

5.  Congrats to Sam Gagner on his first goal of the season and FIRST as an Arizona Coyote! 

Shane Doan has been the Phoenix Coyotes best and most consistent player through 21 games.

Shane Doan scored 3 goals last week on their 4 game road trip!


6.  I don’t think it’s fair to put #1 right-wing scoring expectations on Captain Shane Doan.  At this stage in his career he shouldn’t by expected to carry the scoring burden.     

7.  If things continue going sideways for the Coyotes I wonder how long before G.M. don Maloney pulls the trigger on a blockbuster trade? 

8.  The Coyotes defence is a mess and I wouldn’t mind seeing Brandon Gormley get a look!  

9.  Mikkel Boedker has cooled off and that’s not good.  The Arizona Coyotes need him to be much more consistent this season.     

10.  Do you think the Coyotes miss Radim Vrbata?  (see #6)  


Some of these questions are serious, some are just tongue in cheek and some are me just being a _________.  (you fill in the blank)

If you have any thoughts on any of these questions please let me know.  I am a curious person by nature and I need answers.

Thanks-you, Mitch

    My conspiratorial side tells me that whoever is in charge of this club (and we really don’t know) is grudgingly bringing up the players who can make a difference.
    They probably wanted to save them for a big roll out in a couple of years at a different city.
    Let some older veterans run out the clock in Glendale and go through the motions until the new and improved version gets rolled out on festive style.
    Of course conspiracies can only be dispelled by being shamefully squashed by take charge leadership .
    They are in hiding. Until the right time.
    In the mean time it’s a cup of Timmy ‘s and anarchy…. Ha
