Miele and Shinimin haven't sniffed the Coyotes roster, despite obvious need for skill. I think that Maloney can promise the moon but players aren't stupid. They see Tippett and his favoritism towards veterans. Why go to Phoenix when you can go to a more liberal team? It's not about winning for these players. They need to establish themselves in order to become regulars. You can't do that with Bissonette as your winger 5 minutes every other game.

I can't imagine the Coyotes would be terribly appealing to some of the big FA D out there either.
