Loving it. I think many Coyote fans felt we were going to be in the ******* as well, not knowing what Smith would bring and all. Most of us did feel that if he could replace Bryz, we would be just fine.
You can't really judge the standing now because things aren't even like they are at the end of the year (ex. Canucks have played 14 road games and only 9 home games or the fact that some teams have played a different amount of games->20-25).
Also it's expected that teams like the Bruins and Canucks who played a ton of hockey last year would start slow before picking it up (as they have been).
They picked final standings, not 1/4 season.
