    Carcillo is an unguided missile in whatever he does. Damn the torpedoes, etc. I love what he's doing now with the concussion discussion because he's as unleashed as he was on the ice. He's turned that wild drive into a great asset for player advocacy.

    But on the ice he was a menace to his own team as much as the other one. I can't forget Doan corralling him as the team was leaving the ice for an intermission and basically shouting in his face right there in the tunnel entrance. I don't recall Doan ever doing that with any other player on his team. So if I had to pick and choose for "favorite Coyotes pest/goon," I'd have to go with Tyson Nash, followed by Josh Gratton.

    Doan and Yandle were no brainers- deciding on who to give the 3rd vote to was incedribly hard... Z, Hanzal,Morris, Repo I flipped a coin and it came out Vrbata

    What's really a shame in my opinion is that he had talent to be much more than a goon. He just didn't have the mental make up or control or whatever you want to call it to just play the game. It was easy for the other team to use his penalties to their advantage. I loved the passion he brought to the ice but then he'd do something completely unnecessary and plain stupid that hurt the team. Wasted talent.

    I think Carcillo did a few stupid things and then even after he reined it on quite a bit the reputation calls killed him. I loved him though. He, King, and Brad May would have to be my favourite Coyote "tough guys"-- had too much skill to be just a "goon". Gratton was basically terrible, but he was fearless. Jim Cummins and Jim McKenzie would be tied for third on my list. I hated May when he was in Vancouver. Loved him here. Hated Nash in STL, here, and everywhere. In the booth, he is just salt in the wounds.

    Been with them since the move from Winnipeg. Numminen, Vrbata, Whitney. None of my votes are even top 3! I know, heresy not to include Doan.

    After a great 2005-06 season, the old "coyotescorner" board was absolutely dumping on Nagy before he was moved to Dallas at the next season's deadline.

    And is "Wilson" supposed to be negligible winger Landon Wilson or the wily veteran equipment manager Stan Wilson?

    Vrbata creeping up on OEL in the battle for 3rd though.

    What's not to like about Tkachuk's holdouts? His number-retirement night happened to be in my 12-game plan. I chose to sit in the stairwell rather than sit through it. Couldn't bear to watch it.

    How could you not love JR after he came out with that big can on his head in the playoffs with a broken jaw?

    Gotta love a player who was basically begging to come back to play here multiple times. Plus, he's personally responsible for so many points in the standings with his forehand-backhand-bar down shootout move.

    Easy - everything he did after that (including when he came back for half a season).

    Not to mention some of the comments he’s made in recent years. They should have kept the jaw wired shut.

    Honestly I wish I could take back my Whitney vote for either Hanzal or Vrbata. Probably Vrbata as he's also the reason Richy is here. Voted Whitney was just bc he embodies everything that I want our team to be again.

    Ballard had the best hip-check the league has ever seen. It'd probably cause an uproar and calls for it being an illegal hit if he ever did it in today's NHL though, since if you slightly miss and take out the knees or whatever it's a really dirty hit. Other teams and fans aren't going to see the nuance though and just assume it was dirty, especially considering how rarely you see it. No one is acclimatized to it so they immediately jump to dirty/dangerous play.
