Phoenix Coyotes - Assigned center Kiel McLeod and right wing
Fredrik Sjostrom to Springfield of the American Hockey League.
Spiller looks like the soul survivor.
I anticipate that Simpson will get picked off tomorrow and Phoenix will pick up another D because of the Helmer injury and expected 3 month recovery period. Spiller will play the minimum allowed games with Phoenix without putting his rookie status in jeopardy.
I hope Spiller doesn't get intimidated by the NHLers and stands his ground. That's what the kid's game is all about: brute force, agitation, and intimidation. Man, I hate him! But like I've said before, wish he were on my team.
It was only a matter of time before Spiller saw NHL ice this season, considering how thin our depth is there. He may pull an Ossi and just play so well that you CAN'T take him out...I believe Vaananen was 20 as well when he burrowed his way into the lineup for good.
