It’s been a long, downward road for the Arizona Coyotes ever since their Western Conference Finals appearance in 2012. For the third straight season, the Coyotes missed the playoffs and had the least amount of points in the entire NHL last year.
An optimist would say that it could only go up from here, which is what the organization and fans alike both want to believe. With Dylan Strome being selected third overall in the 2015 NHL Draft, more talented players will be arriving in the near future. For now, some new faces include Nicklas Grossmann, Zbynek Michalek, Antoine Vermette, Boyd Gordon and others. Oliver Ekman-Larsson is, and will continue to be, the team’s rock as it plays the patient game, waiting for stars to develop within the system.
Making it into the postseason may be out of reach for the Coyotes in the 2015-16 campaign, but it certainly is on the horizon. The turnaround has to start at some point, and taking a step in the right direction this season can have a significant impact on the franchise moving forward.
