Coyotes Need a Recipe for Success

The Arizona Coyotes need both a permanent home to call their own and a string of successful draft picks to help develop this franchise into a contender in the Central Division. Edmonton native and 2021 first round draft pick Dylan Guenther is one of those key pieces of the puzzle who may help this franchise in the long run.

For Pens, Concern for ‘Father, Family Guy’ Letang Means More than Hockey

Kris Letang is a special defenseman, ranked No. 31 on the NHL’s all-time scoring list at his position. Only two active blueliners have more points (145G, 517A, 662P), and only four – including Bobby Orr – rank higher with fewer games played than Letang’s 962. The Pens feel confident Letang will play more NHL games. As of Wednesday, though, when that might happen is a question mark.

Fantasy Forward Rankings: 2022-23

It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Connor McDavid tops our fantasy forward rankings for 2022-23. Only 25 years old, he’s got four 100-point seasons under his belt, and if his production continues at a similar pace for another decade, he will almost certainly go down as one of the NHL’s all-time greatest players.

Fantasy Defense Rankings: 2022-23

Fantasy Defense Rankings: 2022-23

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect fantasy defenseman than Cale Makar, who combines elite skating and playmaking skills to consistently deliver point-per-game (or better) production from the blue line. Perhaps most importantly, he plays for an excellent Avalanche team, ensuring that his plus-minus rating should be a help as well.

In particular, more goal-scoring support could certainly help improve his regular season won-loss record.
