Are This Year’s Coyotes A Success Story?

While it’s difficult to say any season that fails to yield a postseason berth is a rip-roaring success, that doesn’t mean the Coyotes have failed outright this year.

Arizona has already cleared its preseason win total over/under of 65.5, making 2022-23 the first year since 2018-19 where the Coyotes exceeded the expectations of Arizona sports betting apps oddsmakers.

The Coyotes’ 67 points this year also mark the franchise’s highest single season total since the 2018-19 team that went 39-35-8.

The 2019-20 season likely would have resulted in an ‘over’ for the Coyotes, were it not for the COVID-19 pause that cut the season off at 56 games.

That year, Arizona finished 33-29-8, qualifying for the final spot in the Western Conference and making a playoff run for the first time since 2011-12.

This year’s team, by comparison, saw bouts of progress on the ice ultimately betrayed by a late-season slump that crushed any shot at a postseason run.

Now, the Andre Tourigny-coached club must find a way to build upon the silver linings of 2022-23, in order for the Coyotes to make a serious charge at the playoffs for the first time since they reached the conference finals in 2012.

As the club looks to build enough goodwill to get voters in Tempe to agree to let the club build a new arena, a solid first step would be for the Coyotes to finish 2023 on a high note.

Either way, the Coyotes have already proven Arizona NHL betting sites oddsmakers wrong on their potential this year.
