Fantasy Season in Review: Phoenix Coyotes

Offensive Corps: Shane Doan led the offense for the sixth straight season with a pedestrian 55 points in 82 games.  To his credit he still managed to carry the offense despite switching to a strictly defensive system.  A decrease from 31 goals to 18 does cause concern as the soon-to-be 34-year-old will not get any […]

Fantasy Season in Review: Nashville Predators

Offensive Corps: The Predators tend to move around their offensive weapons and shuffle lines relatively often.  Due to this, only Steve Sullivan and Patric Hornqvist even eclipsed the 50 point plateau.  This lack of star-power should in no way be a knock on the team as coach Barry Trotz managed to get everything he could […]

Mueller and Wolski Trade Jerseys

The Phoenix Coyotes traded Kevin Porter and Peter Mueller to the Colorado Avalanche for Wojtek Wolski in the first “hockey trade” of the deadline. Wolski moves from the first line in Colorado alongside Paul Stastny to likely the first line alongside Shane Doan and Matthew Lombardi.  We mentioned a few weeks ago how Mueller occupied […]

Mueller Reaps Benefit of Fallen Coyote

The Coyotes recently lost their leading scorer Scottie Upshall to a torn ACL, effectively leaving a gaping hole on the first line.  Who will likely reap the benefits? Peter Mueller. A large disappointment to most owners, Mueller finds himself on the opposite wing of last week’s first star: Shane Doan.  In his first game on […]

An Unlikely Perfect Combination for Coyotes

Prior to joining the Phoenix Coyotes, Matthew Lombardi wasn’t much more than a second line – at best – center for the Calgary Flames.  The former 3rd rounder never really found his groove in 4.5 seasons with the Flames and his best year, 2006-07, hitting 20 goals for the only time to finish 20-26-46 in […]
