I think Coyotes fans, more than most, have spent these first few weeks of the Free Agent signing season looking at each other and saying, "Who?"
We realize, naturally, that the Yotes are going to "get to the playoffs" on the cheap this year. Cheap and young. Why, they might even have to have Kool-Aid in the locker room for this bunch. And they certainly are going to have to serve it to those of us in the stands, if you know what I mean. Yeah, THAT kind of Kool-Aid.
After summarily dismissing and insulting any veteran over 30, they have (so far) assembled a lackluster bunch of young'uns with what they hope is potential.
I don't know, if I want to spend money watching potential, I'll take in a few Roadrunner games.
And another thing...
Three weeks into the month, we are now starting to see the "experts" and their columns on the "second tier" of signings, all of them with an opinion on who is worth of a contract and who isn't. All of them with something snarky to say, as well, on those they deem UNworthy.
I've always wondered what gives these "expert opinions" any more weight than those of my fellow bloggeres, or myself for that matter. Most of us are just as knowledgable about the game of hockey as any of the columnists claiming to have an inside track on what will or will not happen. In fact, I would wager to say that some are even MORE knowledgable. Do these so called experts have the ear of GMs throughout the league? Or are they just lucky enough to be getting paid for having an opinion?
And where is MY check, by the way?
