Can the Coyotes be successful?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Thus far, the Coyotes have played the fewest games of any team in the NHL, but they have the distinction of extracting the maximum number of points from their one game. While looking at their place in the standings might give the impression that they are slow out of the gate, but Coyotes GM John Chayka recently spoke with Fox Sports Arizona with a bold proclamation: “We expect to be successful.”

Who knows what Chayka means by successful. If it is in the short term, then one has to be skeptical. There isn’t really an outlet that has the Coyotes even finishing higher than about 6th in their division. Maybe Chayda was referring to the prospects? That was almost certainly it. The Coyotes have done fairly well in order to stock their franchise with youthful potential. How about as a franchise? Yes, the Coyotes look like they might be in a better spot than they’ve been in decades. The NHL seems committed to keeping the Coyotes in Arizona, and has even doubled down on their investment in the desert, adding Las Vegas to the league. Chayka is right, just so long as you look far enough in the future.
