Phoenix Coyotes

Have I Mentioned That The Phoenix Coyotes Are In The Playoffs?

Phoenix Coyotes A week ago the Phoenix Coyotes clinched their playoff spot by annihilating the Colorado Avalanche. So euphoric I was that I got writers block. Could it be the awesome scoring power of Lee Stempniak, Wojtek Wolski, Radim Vrbata and Matthew Lombardi? Or the defensive moves AND scoring power of Keith Yandle and Adrian Aucoin? Or the very shrewd draft moves that brought us some of our top playing team members? Maybe it’s the incredible coaching change?

Who knows and who cares because for the first time since 2002, the Phoenix Coyotes are making a run for the cup. Of course all the talk lately has still been focused on their financial woes and who it is that will step up and buy the team. Ice Edge Holdings still appears to be a contender and Jerry Reinsdorf has now reappeared to once again throw his hat into the ring. The rumor mill has been running rampant including an “April Fool’s” joke that IE played on the Globe and Mail and Dave Shoalts. The report was that IE had given up its hunt for the Coyotes and moved on to bigger prey..Manchester United. Apparently Shoalts didn’t feel the need to check his facts and the news outlet ended up with a little egg on their face..ooops! That’s what they get for all the bagging they have done on my Coyotes!!

The real news still remains the impending White Out playoff season. The Desert Underdogs have pulled out of the shame of financial ruin, public ridicule and general neglect (ain’t it funny how the local news is suddenly reporting on them??) to show what they can do and finally earn a little respect. And even if they go no further than the first round, they will still be the standout team of 2009-2010.

And Dave Tippett? A monument should be erected in his honor outside Jobing.com Arena…
