Talk about a fallacy. What does one have to do with the other? Don't be so insecure, we all said he sucked on the Coyotes, and he will continue to suck wherever else he goes.

I've never thought much of Labarbera. Hopefully he proves me wrong.

They're words from someone who has actually watched him play though.

"Worst" might be an exaggeration, but he is not good. Just be thankful it's a one year deal.

I have a feeling the locker room presence was a big part of this. All 3 signings by MacT are known to be great in the locker room. Need to surround the kids with these types of guys.

That's not his actual nickname. That's the nickname Kings fan gave him because he's hysterically bad.

And repeatedly reminded coyotes fans that he deserved that nickname.

I wasn't serious in that he himself goes by that nickname but he is commonly referred to by that name by PHX and LA fans.

Coyotes fans didn't need a reminder. His play spoke for itself.
