The Plan For The Arizona Coyotes

from Craig Morgan of FoxSports Arizona,

Choose your perspective. New Coyotes majority owner Andrew Barroway has either told general manager Don Maloney:

A. Blow this team up and shed payroll.


B. The current group isn't working. We need to change the mix and look to the future.

Option A is much sexier to write and report. Option B is more objective and also closer to what actually transpired in a series of blunt meetings between the two this week.

Barroway arrived back in town earlier this week and has rolled up his sleeves as he begins his evaluation of every aspect of the organization. He has hired an independent firm to examine the business side of the team as the Coyotes begin laying the groundwork for a long overdue long-term plan.

"We struggled to survive for so long but now, having stable ownership means we have a long-term plan," Maloney said. "That may result in some long nights ahead of us but ultimately, the goal is to get where L.A. and Anaheim and Chicago are -- to become a perennial playoff team."
