After a very, very exciting July 1st, it seems as though Mr. Maloney has cooled the engines on the trades/signing mobile.
He re-signed Keith Yandle to a steal of a deal, or seems so after the Shea Weber arbitration award, and then proceeded to sign a million players on the first day of free agency.
The Coyotes are a different team now than they were just a few shorts months ago. It seems like a good thing considering how the past two post-seasons went for the team.
This past post-season, the Coyotes were swept by the Detroit Red Wings. From the first game on, things didn't look good for the team. And the season before they lost in seven games.
But things change and now that Nashville has finally made it out of the first round, maybe it's the Coyotes turn to do it.
Anything you can do I can do better.

The Coyotes have improved over the season but not by much. We think that with some of the players signed were hit-or-miss in the looks department but that's how it goes. The addition of Boyd Gordon and Mike Smith helps but we deducted two points for Torres alone. We are cruel, cruel beetches.
