Record: 36-39-7, 79 pts.
Key Additions: Adrian Aucoin, Radim Vrbata, Vernon Fiddler, Taylor Pyatt, Jim Vandermeer, Jason LaBarbera
Key Subtractions: Steven Reinprecht, Nigel Dawes, Ken Klee, Enver Lisin, Brandon Prust
X-Factor: Ilya Bryzgalov
‘Bryz’ must be more than solid in net for this team to stay in contention.
Breakout player: Mikkel Boedker
In his rookie year, Boedker struggled while putting up 28 points. He should fare much better in 09/10.
Prospect to watch: Brett MacLean
The 2nd round pick in 2007 has a lot of ability, but may be a year away from having an effect at the NHL level.
On the hot seat: Matthew Lombardi
Acquired in the Jokinen trade last spring, Lombardi had 16 points in 19 games with the ‘Yotes. He needs to continue that success as the top line pivot.
Buy: Shane Doan
Sell: Ed Jovanovski
Sleeper: Radim Vrbata
Bold Prediction: Promising forward Peter Mueller will have a bounce back season and lead the Coyotes in goals scored.
Team Overview: Phoenix has endured many problems and distractions this off-season. Wayne Gretzky stepped down as coach, and the ownership issues speak for themselves. They have a lot of good prospects, but haven’t used them wisely the last couple years. Once thought to be on the rise, the ‘Yotes seem to have hit a wall. They could easily be the worst team in the conference, and that won’t bode well for their ongoing attendance issues.
Current 09/10 Prediction-
5th in Pacific Division
It's the best time of year!
