Arizona Coyotes Stanley Cup Betting

The Arizona Coyotes have one major accomplishment heading into the 2022-23 season. In fact, they have done the unfathomable. The Coyotes have become more absurd than ever before. Arizona has given up on its old home of Glendale and is seeking to build a new arena in Tempe. In the interim, the Coyotes will play at the home of the NCAA Arizona State Sun Devils in a 6,000-seat facility.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has been steadfast in keeping the Coyotes in Arizona. The Atlanta Thrashers, who had better fan support in a bigger market, were allowed to go with no fight to Winnipeg. Yet the Coyotes are the hill the Bettman is willing to die on.

For 2022-23 the Coyotes are a virtual lock to be the worst team in hockey.

Western Conference Odds: +37500 (Aug, 2022)

Last year the Arizona Coyotes had a record of 25-50-7 to finish last in the Central Division. Arizona missed the postseason for the second consecutive season. They have had one playoff appearance since 2012. Arizona ranked 32nd for goal scoring, 30th for power play efficiency, 30th for goals against, and 29th for penalty killing.

Majority owner Alex Meruelo has been a source of controversy from the day he bought the team. Meruelo owns significant gambling interests in Arizona. But he must hold the Coyotes to maintain those business advantages. Thus, there is the theory that Meruelo is not as interested in building a winning team as just having one as a front for his gambling operations. Last year news reports surfaced about Meruelo that cast him as a tyrant and someone that doesn’t like to pay his bills. It was a terrible blow to a franchise that already lacks credibility.

General manager Bill Armstrong is a former St. Louis Blues assistant general manager and director of amateur scouting. He was in St. Louis when they won the 2019 Stanley Cup championship. Armstrong is respected in NHL circles but has nothing to work with in his current role. It will take the Coyotes years to recover from their current policy of a blowup and rebuild.

Head coach Andre Tourigny enters his second season as the Coyotes head coach. Last year he produced a better than expected 25-50-7 record with a team that was outmanned but hard working.

The Coyotes are rumored to be trying to trade Jakob Chychrun, a second pair left defenseman that has been one of their better players. Zach Kassian was an addition in the offseason, but outside of a name that fans recognize, he brings little else. Right wing Clayton Keller returns after scoring a team-high 28 goals last year.

Arizona Coyotes History

Born in 1972 as a World Hockey Association charter member as the Winnipeg Jets, the Coyotes moved to the metro Phoenix area in 1996. Their best season was in 2012, when they made the Western Conference Final. Ironically enough, that is when they were an orphan owned by the NHL.

From the start, it has been a struggle for Arizona in the desert. Originally the Coyotes shared an arena with the NBA Phoenix Suns. But many of the seats in one end zone were obstructed. When the Coyotes finally got their own home, it was in remote Glendale. The theory was that there would be major land development with a shopping mall, homes, and entertainment complexes. The project never worked despite a football stadium for the NFL Arizona Cardinals being next door. Coyote fans hated the long drive from downtown and affluent Scottsdale. Especially for weeknight games.

Now the Coyotes have left Glendale to play at the home of the NCAA Arizona State Sun Devils program in an arena that seats around 6,000 fans. The plan is to play there for a couple of years until a new arena can be built in Tempe. The project is yet to see a shovel penetrate the ground.
