COYOTES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Coyotes' struggles lead to roster overhaul

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...

Silver linings playbook: Coyotes regaining identity

"Other than a couple hiccups here and there, there's lots of try in our group," Tippett said. ...
