I took a casual glance at the roster for the Phoenix Coyotes this morning. I realize, of course, that they still have quite a bit of money to spend to fill out that roster. But I also realize that they won't spend it. So this, my friends, this is the roster that we will be working with come October.
In the "promising, up and coming, youth movement" category we have... well, we have most of the roster. The only veteran "leadership" left to speak of is Shane Doan, assuming that the Yotes dump the bloated contract of Jovanovski. There is a back-up goalie backing up another back-up goalie, and there is still not one scoring forward or sniper to be found.
In today's email, I received an invitation to a private reception to speak with new GM Maloney.
I can promise you that he does not want to hear anything I have to say. I'd bet money on it.
