NHL Free Agency: What Can The Coyotes Do?

NHL free agency kicks off today and the Coyotes (still owned by the NHL) have numerous needs.

SB Nation's Coyotes blog Five For Howling breaks it down in super detail:

The 2010-2011 Phoenix Coyotes Roster: (Information via Capgeek.com)

Roster Size: 19 players under contract. 11 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goaltenders.

Payroll: $40,022,917.00

Cap Space: $18,677,083

Money to Cap Floor: $3,377,083

Expected Budget: What's the cap floor? 43.4 Million? Then our budget is 43.6.

Key Needs: Well as you'll see below we're going to be losing some bodies so unless we're going to be bringing in young guys for all the holes we'll need to pick up a couple guys up front and another defenseman if we can't find a way to get Zbynek Michalek signed sometime this morning.

In a slightly related note, the Coyotes open their season in one of the most beautiful, unique cities in the world. The team has partnered with AAA Travel to put a package together for fans who might want to go for a visit.
