Webster6 Posted March 2, 2015 Share Posted March 2, 2015 I think there’s a good chance that McDavid is going to end up landing in the Desert. It’s the ultimate of conspiracies, that of which being, the league trying to force Arizona to stay in the desert to promote hockey. Although I won’t to be taking the conspiracy route for my argument. My speculation is based on the fact that the Coyotes have lost 9 straight, and although the Sabres are 4 points back in the standings with the same amount of games played. The ‘Yotes just unloaded Antoine Vermette, as well as Keith Yandle. Moves which will dramatically impact their play in a negative way and in turn, their ability to contend for points. The Sabres are only on a 1 game losing streak and are also 3-5-2 in their last 10, good for 8 points. Meanwhile the Coyotes are 1-9 in their last 10 games. Both teams have a brutal goal differential, the Sabres being the league worst with -89, and the Coyotes coming in as a close second with -76. It will likely be a close race between the two. Edmonton is obviously still in the race as well, but have a more experienced roster which has good, but sporadic chemistry. They will most likely do a better job of collecting points down the stretch. The Oilers have gone 4-5-1 in their last 10, have a -65 goal differential, and have only lost once since their last W. To conclude, I think Arizona has the most depleted roster, has been playing the worst of late; play of which only will get worse because of recent trades. On top of it all, Arizona has a very tough stretch of games coming up. Which include Anaheim on Tuesday. Then they move on to play the Nucks, Habs, Preds, and Hawks. Good luck to Sabres fans and Oil Town. Although I gotta gut feeling that Arizona is gonna speed past you both to the finish line down Tank Alley.
