By their standards, the @Pittsburgh Penguins had a disappointing 2018-19 season. They finished the regular season third in the Metropolitan Division with a 44-26-12 record before being swept by the Islanders in the first round of the playoffs. @Sidney Crosby and the first line were as dominant as ever, but the Penguins lacked depth scoring…

The Arizona Coyotes sputtered to a 29-41-12 record in 2017-18. The Coyotes struggled to find the back of the net, scoring the second-fewest goals in the league.

The Arizona Coyotes have traded winger Max Domi to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for centre Alex Galchenyuk.  Galchenyuk was the No.3 overall pick in 2012 but has disappointed in recent years after breaking out with 30 goals and 26 assists (56 points) in 2015-16. Galchenyuk has had a tough time adjusting to playing centre,…
