Draft will impact Coyotes down road; trades could impact them now

With less than five days remaining until NHL free agency begins, the Coyotes have only re-signed one of their key free agents: defenseman Chris Summers.  That's not a surprise since the team never intended to bring back defenseman Derek Morris, goalie Thomas Greiss wants to test the waters to see if he can land a starting gig, and the team will look to upgrade on veteran forwards...

Coyotes notes: Summers hopes to capitalize on new deal

On Monday, Summers was signing on the dotted line -- a two-year deal worth about $1.2 million that will keep the defenseman with the franchise through 2015-16. "It definitely was a relief to get it out of the way so fast -- especially with free agency not starting until July 1," Summers said...

Coyotes slip past Devils in SO, 3-2

When three defensemen, two forwards and a goalie are on the list of scratches things may not be well. With Paul Bissonnette, Brandon Gormley, Derek Morris, Mike Ribeiro, David Schlemko and Mike Smith not even dressed, things may have looked a little grim; that didn't improve much when David Moss went to the locker room after a bad hit in the first period, but the Coyotes found...

Never the easy way, but Coyotes prevail against Flames

Pack your Pepto and practice deep breathing. This is how the final 14 games of the Phoenix Coyotes season look: an imperfect team struggling to overcome its demons and deficiencies to squeeze into the playoffs.

Market still tough as NHL's trade freeze ends

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The NHL's Olympic trade freeze expires Sunday at 10 p.m. Arizona time. But don't expect the Coyotes to pull the trigger on a trade just yet.  The NHL's trade deadline will still be 10 days away when business re-opens, and the market looks much the same as it did before the freeze went into effect.

Day Gaming

I love day games. I wish none of us had to work and all games could be during the day. It was a great game at that too. The Coyotes haven't been playing badly these last few games but for whatever reason they just couldn't get a lot of wins. Yesterday was a great game/effort by all Coyotes on the ice. I don't think there was one guy who wasn't playing balls to the...
