 No. 29: Arizona Coyotes

Previous: No. 29

Record:  16-26-6 (38 points)

Well, we now know that goaltender Mike Smith can score a goal through a tiny slot in the net from the other end of the ice.  But, unfortunately, that’s not going to win you many hockey games.  The Coyotes continue to struggle.  They sit 11 points behind the next lowest team, even after having won their last three games.  That’s going to be a hard rut to climb out of.
