A somewhat normal GDT, I'm not used to this.

"@azc_mclellan: No Morris on the ice this morning at #Coyotes skate."

Also first time we got a team off a back to back in which the Yotes had a night off.

To be honest, I can't find much about this team to rip about. Not to mention a team that can be argued is simular to this team in many ways, only without the winning a playoff series and the ownership mess.

Don't worry, it's refreshing. Much rather have a simple GTD that gives me all the straight facts of the game. I use HF mobile and HF mobile only, so when all these YouTube videos and .gifs are used, i don't even bother. Takes forever to load and wastes my battery. When they are simple like this, i can actually post in the thread.

Injured. He played a few games and looked like typical Lombardi. Speedy, crafty playmaker.

I think I saw that Biz is playing instead of Johnson.

Biz has actually impressed me this year. Scrappier, grittier, quicker. Looks like he genuinely enjoys helping this team. No matter what anybody says about him on these boards, "bizwussy" or whatever, nobody truly understands what the amount of pressure a goon faces. Imagine going to work everyday pretty much knowing you're going to get into a fight. He may not be the best fighter, but he certainly doesn't suck, and i appreciate everytime he drops the gloves for this team. It's called sacrificing your body.

I don't understand the love GMDM and Tipp have for Biz. Maybe we are missing something.

I agree on all points. Also interesting to have him suit up against the only 2 guys who owned him a fight the past couple of years. Gillies when he was with the Islanders handled Biz pretty easily and remember the fight where Boll broke Biz' nose a couple of years ago and nearly dropped him. Good chance he goes with one or both tonight.

Predicting a Coyote offensive explosian tonight! 5-6 goals and Doaner with his second hat-trick.

It's not like Boll or Gillies is going to grab a random Coyote and start punching them unless you put in Biz. He has no reason to be on this team. I'm not sure how you can judge his contributions as being 'better' when he gets 5 minutes of TOI a game. Johnson is in every way a better player and absolutely should be in. Biz should be playing in a beer league where sideshow attractions belong.

Lacks hockey skills. What does he bring to the offense or defense ?
Good guy, though.

Bringing my sister from Georgia to the game tonight.

Had to relocate to another section though. I wonder who got my regular seat.

With Morris out it's almost a certainty. Possibly paired with OEL? Those play well together.

He needs to get on the scorecard and give management a reason to not send him down again. He is frustrating to watch. The tools are so obviously there. You could argue he has a better feel for the offensive zone than OEL. But he reminds me of Lepisto in the defensive zone. Outmatched by nearly everyone, and not enough stick skill to mitigate it.
