As goes Mike Smith, so go the Arizona Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes are not a very good hockey team. This is an obvious statement that requires no advanced statistics or anything of the like. They’re decent on paper and the product on the ice has been quite poor. If the current trend that has been witnessed in the first near-quarter of the season is any indication, they could spend the year battling the Edmonton Oilers for...

Barroway deal to take control of Coyotes still on track

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It's a new month. It must be time for an out-of-town media outlet to don the blindfold and play pin the Coyotes on the North American map. Where are they headed now? Winnipeg? Quebec? Seattle? Las Vegas? Stockholm? Coyotes ownership is resigned to the fact that until it passes the five-year window to exercise that out clause without, you know, exercising it...

Arizona Coyotes up for sale…again

Just when it seemed like the Arizona Coyotes were out of the woods when it came to their ownership situation, they find themselves right back in the thick of it.
