Canadiens Host The Phoenix Coyotes – The Illegitimate Child Of The Winnipeg Jets

Wayne Gretzky’s Phoenix Coyotes are at the Bell Centre Saturday night for a tilt with the Canadiens, and I mention Wayne Gretzky because other than him and Kyle Turris, there’s not a whole lot to say about the Coyotes.

 

Maybe I could say that the Coyotes were originally the Winnipeg Jets and maybe should be again. Or I could say that Kyle Turris has a good chance to be a big star in the NHL. Or I could say that hockey in the desert just doesn’t seem right. Or I could say that the official average attendance in Phoenix for a Coyotes’ game is about 14,000, but in reality it’s probably less than that. Or I could say that legendary Russian taskmaster Viktor Tikhonov’s grandson Viktor is on the Coyotes roster. Or I could say that both Shane Doan and Ed Jovanovski are good Canadian boys and it must be weird for them to be playing in such a non-hockey market.

 

Whatever. I could say anything. But as long as the Habs win, collect their two points, and no one gets injured, who cares what anyone says?
