GLENDALE, Ariz. -- In judging the Coyotes' moves over the last four months, it would be prudent to follow general manager Don Maloney's advice.  It's the long view that matters, not the immediate view. A few examples: Short view: The Coyotes dumped Antoine Vermette at the trade deadline when they were already deficient at the center position. Long view: They got a defenseman (Klas...

''It's not a great group,'' Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said recently. ''Your options are minimal.'' Options are out there, such as center Antoine Vermette, wingers Matt Beleskey and Justin Williams, defensemen...
