Good article in the Globe and Mail about the role of speed in the success of the Phoenix Coyotes this season. Here's a link: http://tinyurl.com/ycyrae6
1) as my hockey buddy Scott has been saying the past two seasons - and I agree - the Kings don't have a lot of speed and that probably dooms them in the playoffs.
2) God, I wish I was faster. Or, perhaps I should say I wish I wasn't so slow and could better defend against faster skaters (I'm open to suggestions on improving my D). If you can't maul your opponent as you would in the NHL, you better be able to do something other than serve as a human pylon.
