MIKE SMITH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Can Mike Smith continue to trend upward?

Throughout the season, my default response to the question, “Why are the Coyotes so bad?” has been automatic. I’ve led off that laundry-list of haplessness with the following name: Mike Smith. Such a list would be long enough at the moment to kill a couple of trees; however, it’s no longer completely fair to blame […] The post Can Mike Smith continue to trend upward? appeared...

Video: Mike Smith jumps over the puck to avoid making a save

All of the goaltending talk on Tuesday night focused on the Florida Panthers and the fact Rob Tallas was nearly called into action. Mike Smith wasn’t the center of attention, but he maybe should have been as he jumped over a shot and avoided the puck in a bizarre scene which may make fans think the Coyotes are tanking on purpose. http://bloguin.com/puckdrunklove/wp-content/uploads...

Arizona Coyotes experiencing serious buyer’s remorse with Mike Smith

To say that this season has been a disappointment for the Arizona Coyotes would be a tremendous understatement. Assuming things continue at their current pace, this is a team that will likely continue to battle it out with the likes of the Edmonton Oilers to stay out of the Western Conference cellar, a far cry from where this team was just a few years ago, when they made it as...

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...

Smith playing best hockey since Coyotes' conference final run

BOSTON -- Mike Smith drops the idea so casually that you almost move on without examining the enormity of it. "With where we are in the standings I have to be the best player on the ice every game out or we're not going to have a chance to make the playoffs," Smith says. The pressure of lesser expectations weighed on Smith earlier this season, as did the impending Olympic roster...

New attitude helps Smith post season's first shutout

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Mike Smith was a little cranky recently. With the first half of the season not going according to his imagined script, and with the Canadian Olympic announcement weighing on his mind, the Coyotes goalie just wasn't having fun. So with the help of goalie coach Sean Burke, Smith took a step back, took stock of his predicament and decided to reverse course. "We have...
