Koivu is the best offensive weapon that team has, and by a lot. I don't think he's on the table.
Agreed. Not only that he is their best defensive player to. I don't think a Selke is out of the question for him in the near future. Plus with Minnesota opening up their offensive game, I'd say his offensive production will likely increase dramatically. One of the best all 3 zone players in the league right now. If we were asking for him, we better be ready to offer the likes of Turris, Boedker, and Mueller easily.
"We won last night but I wasn't real happy with the way we played," Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett said Sunday, about 12 hours after his team's 3-2 triumph over Ottawa. "We're going to have to play much better... We had some soft plays here and there... I think our team is better than that."
Tippett also noted that his team's lack of a killer instinct - it led Ottawa by three goals in the third period - disturbed him.
Hearing that Tippet is upset about soft plays and a lack of a killer instinct, I'm just a bit confused why he inserts Mueller into the lineup?
