UFAs Jeff Halpern And Paul Bissonnette Waiting For A Phone Call

from Sarah McLellan of the ARizona Republic, Halpern was issued the same clue when the Coyotes signed depth center Joe Vitale earlier this month, but the 38-year-old isn't closing the door on his NHL career.

Zone Starts and Mike Ribeiro’s Buyout

The Phoenix Coyotes bought out Mike Ribeiro's contract this summer.  He had signed a four year contract with a $5.5 million cap hit the year before.  Since this contract was signed after the most recent CBA was signed it is not a compliance buyout and will count against the Arizona Coyotes salary cap into the future.  The reason given for the buyout is that Ribeiro had off...

Arizona Coyotes prospect profile: Max Domi

The Coyotes may live and die by the young swords this season, with Brandon Gormley and Connor Murphy both expected to crack the top six defensive pairings, as well as guys like Lucas Lessio and Max Domi also possessing good chances to make the team.

David Moss re-signs with Coyotes while on his honeymoon

The NHL's free-agent signing period opened three days before winger David Moss' wedding July 4 and six days before he embarked on a honeymoon in Turks and Caicos with his wife Erinn.

Coyotes Need More Goals

from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic, It's clear the Coyotes need to bolster their scoring options, but by late July or early August the remaining free agents don't usually provide that type of impact. A trade still is a possibility, and that might be the best remedy. But even that might take some time to execute — perhaps in training camp when teams have...

Devan Dubnyk: An Underwhelming Trade

A year ago, one could understand why the Coyotes would want to sign free-agent goalie Devan Dubnyk. Dubnyk came away from the 2012-2013 season with career highs and a promising outlook—he had a 2.57 goals against average as well as a .921 save percentage. However, Dubnyk’s last season with the Edmonton Oilers makes the Coyotes’ choice a little more uncertain. His season with...

Arizona Coyotes: Grading free agency

With a free agent pool whose biggest names were Ryan Miller and Paul Stastny, 2014 was already destined to be a slow offseason. Take all that indifference and combine it with a shoestring budget and you get the Arizona Coyotes offseason. Or at least, that’s what the moves suggest.When your biggest signings are a backup goaltender and a fourth-line center, there is very little to...

Darkhorse Gaudet embracing opportunity

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The majority of NHL prospects confront sobering realities early in their careers.  They won't be signing eight-figure contracts.
