    good deal, if nagy wouldnt have been injured, he would of hit 5million in opayroll. maybe he needs a chance to prove his playoff performance first, but with the team he just resigned with now, looks like he will get his chance this year. go yotes.

    Nagy at 3 mil is a steal for the Coyotes. I mean who would you rather have — Nagy at 3 mil or J.P. Dumont at 2.9 mil? They’re both a bit injury prone, but clearly any NHL GM would rather have Nagy. Just goes to show that arbitration is a bizarre process with somewhat unpredictable results.

    Surveying the Coyotes’ roster, it’s clear that this team has the personnel to qualify for the playoffs. The defence looks solid with Boynton, Jovanoski, Morris, and Ballard making up an excellent top 4.

    Plenty of speed and skill up front. Cujo is advancing in years and hasn’t been near as good in recent years as he was in Toronto. And Sauve is a pitiful excuse for a backup, so they had better hope Cujo stays healthy. Otherwise LeNeveu gets thrown into the fire again. Maybe he’ll be ready to make the jump to the NHL.

    Hope the yotes do well this year, but I think they’ll be in a real dogfight for that last playoff spot in the West.

    Nagy is finally showing what he can do. Too bad a longer deal couldn’t be reached.
