  • Off the Ice: Taking a look back at the 2013-14 Phoenix Coyotes

    I hate writing this piece. Not only because this means the Phoenix Coyotes’ season is done for the year, but writing it for the second time in a row in mid-April makes it all the more painful. Also, this is your chance to laugh at how wrong I was. After such a promising start, the […]
  • Coyotes close season with win in ‘hollow’ game

    At 8:33 p.m. Sunday, the Phoenix Coyotes’ 2013-2014 season officially came to a close. The game, once possibly a playoff decider, was decribed as “hollow” by head coach Dave Tippett. His team may have emerged as the victor in a 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars, but no matter the outcome, he and his squad […]
  • Coyotes’ woeful stretch run shows it’s time for change

    There comes a time in life when all good things come to an end. An ice cold beer. “How I Met Your Mother.” A playoff run. The Phoenix Coyotes were officially eliminated from the playoffs Friday courtesy of a 3-0 win by the Dallas Stars over the St. Louis Blues. But let’s face it: The […]
  • Off the Ice: Confidence key if Coyotes are going to make playoffs

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — Confidence is a funny thing. Too low of an amount and a man can look diminished, weak. Too much and the man grows too tall, easily tripping himself up. And just the right amount makes him look taller. It’ll even let him cover up a few mistakes. It’s pretty clear the Phoenix […]
  • Ice Bites: Grading Phoenix Coyotes trade for Martin Erat

    The National Hockey League trade window has come to a close and, after all the dust settled, the Phoenix Coyotes were up a winger, a pick and a prospect and down three prospects and a veteran defenseman. After it was all said and done, every hockey pundit took to the Internet to grade the trades, […]
  • Off the Ice: Should the Phoenix Coyotes make a move for a left wing?

    Let’s talk trades, shall we? As it stands, the Phoenix Coyotes are a bubble team this season at best. I’m not bashing the team, but being realistic. They’re not giving their defense the leads it needs, and they are finding ways to let points slip through their fingers. It’s simple. So, where’s the problem? As […]
  • Mike Eruzione: Team USA an underdog in Sochi? Try favorites

    GLENDALE, Ariz. – Hockey wasn’t really that big of a deal to Americans in the lead-up to the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. After all, why should it be? The Americans didn’t medal in the 1976 games and everyone, and I mean everyone, knew the Soviet Union was going to win. How could they […]
  • Off the Ice: Pressure on for Coyotes in playoff hunt ahead of Olympic break

    The National Hockey League is taking a break soon for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The Phoenix Coyotes are three points out of the playoffs. That’s not good. But it’s not the end of the world. Phoenix is part of one of the toughest Western Conference races in recent memory. Five other teams are […]
  • Off the Ice: Paul Bissonnette deserves a regular spot with Coyotes

    There’s more to a hockey team than forwards, defensemen and goalies. I’m not sure I’ve ever begun a column with such an obvious statement, but it’s true. Team officials spend hours poring over the perfect fit for their team, that perfect player to drop in to the lineup that will make the difference in a […]
  • Off the Ice: Phoenix Coyotes clicking without their captain

    Coyotes captain Shane Doan missed his third straight game with an undetermined illness Thursday against the New York Islanders. While the Coyotes didn’t exactly struggle on the ice (they won 6-3), it’s strange to watch a team that looks to Doan when times get tough. Say, nearly blowing a 4-1 lead? But the team can’t […]
