Here is the last of the Coyotes UFAs:
These players mostly played in the AHL. Tim Kennedy played about half the year in the AHL and the other half in NHL. I really can’t comment too much on these players as I don’t have the time to follow every player in every league. I have a real job and a life outside of this blog.
I did like what I saw from Tim Kennedy so I wouldn’t mind extending him an offer.
I will say I think Andy Miele needs to think about leaving the Coyotes system. He will most likely never play in the NHL for the Coyotes. They have given him chances but he never sticks around for long. Don’t get me wrong, I like the kid. He is good but he is small and he can’t win faceoffs in the NHL. He may have a better chance at making the NHL by going elsewhere. Or he could just be a career AHLer, nothing wrong with that. I just would like to see him succeed.
Next weekend is the draft. Hopefully Monday ...

... it is an annual rite of summer to have Keith Yandle trade rumors swirling, and this is an important offseason for the Phoenix Coyotes, who were some folks' pick (OK, mine and mine alone) to win the Stanley Cup last year....
Phoenix is deep along the blue line and Yandle would command a handsome return, but the guess here is that if Yandle...
