February is going to be tough.


Some good news at least

REINPRECHT'S INJURY NOT TOO SEVERE

The Coyotes are expecting center Steven Reinprecht to return from a shoulder injury in about two weeks, Head Coach Wayne Gretzky said after Saturday's morning skate. Tests on the injured shoulder conducted Friday afternoon revealed less damage than the team originally feared.

It is probably a stupid idea but I would like to see Nikulin play... I always enjoy the first game of a Coyote player!

I agree. They called him up, they might as well give him a game or two before they send him back down.

...particularly considering how flaky he has proven to be in terms of his likelihood to stick around North America.

I would like to see him as well

I have seen Joel play... I want to see the new kid.

I would actually like to see a Tiki - Enver - Nikulin line for a couple of shifts.

He and Lisin are friends and maybe seeing what Enver is doing and getting some first hand info on how the big club works may turn him around. We don't have too much invested in hims so even if he leaves it doesn't hurt us too much but if it turns out he and Enver have some chemistry it would be a nice bonus.

Well, if he's going to go to the KHL if they send him down again this year, I'd let him. If he doesn't want to play in SA, I don't want him there.

They probably want to roll with at least 13 forwards for awhile with players dropping like flies.

According to his blog, he's going to honor the rest of his contract which expires at the end of this season regardless of whether he plays for PHX or SA.

The Coyotes need to see what he's got to decide if he's part of their future. With so many injuries, this is a good time to play him. I hope to see him out there tonight.

Look at the impact JP has had on San Antonio this year - that's impact player right there.

BTW, did anyone see the hit on mueller?? Who got him?
Yes...you are. Man, do you try at this crap, or does it just come natural?
