    Nice article from ESPN on Garland. His responses are like his play on the ice. He knows what needs to be done and consistently strives to work harder and be better.

    Contrast that to Keller. He often looks scared and indifferent on the ice. IMO, the tone of his responses in his interview pretty much parallel is play. Sort of like ....oh well.

    Garland mentioned that it used to come easy and then had a realization that he needed to step it up. Maybe Keller needs that day of reckoning too or I fear what we're seeing now is his ceiling.

    Arizona Coyotes need more out of Clayton Keller

    Chayka is going to look like an idiot if Keller has already peaked. For the Coyotes sake, Keller better not have peaked.

    I know Keller has been invisible for about 4 weeks, but I do think he has a chance to turn it around next year or two. If he can put on some strength and confidence, he is a 70+ point player. I was hoping they would let him take a couple games off recently to slow everything down for him, but it looks like he is coming out of it now.

    Maybe, maybe not. Lets get into the playoffs at least once before we declare his brilliance:)

    Brilliant GM? Come on now, let's stop being a homer. Chayka has not had one successful season as GM, not one playoff appearance and you call him brilliant? Not yet, maybe never.

    Being named an all star at such a young age might not have been great for Keller's development.

    I love seeing prospects earn their AHL pay before getting called up. It's a great place to mature.

    I once worked with a card carrying Mensa genius; read books on quantum physics for fun. But she didn't function well in society; I wouldn't trust her to walk my dog.

    How does this realate to JC? He might be a genius, but doesn't mean he can assemble a Cup winner.

    I love that Chayka gets absolutely no credit for turning this absolute dumpster fire shithole embarrassment of an organization into a playoff contender in 3 years. Starts off with literally one of the worst rosters in the history of the league and absolutely nothing as far as prospects and the team would have made the playoffs last year if not for the historic amount of injuries.

    Clearly anybody can do that which is why the Coyotes have such a rich history of winning...

    We'll see if his creation can get over the hump and into to the playoffs, but to get this far in such a short amount of time is f***ing brilliant. Full stop. Have fun with the fickle fan circle jerk though.

    On top of it we haven't been able to draft a McEichle, Matthews, Laine, Svechnikov, Pettersson like some of these other teams.

    Whatever else anyone thinks of Chayka, what he's done with the scouting staff has been significant for this franchise. Maloney should get credit, at least for the first few years of his tenure, for what he did for the team on the ice - but I was not at all a fan of his drafts. Chayka has given us some legitimate prospects in our pipeline - and one of our best is a guy virtually none of us had on our radar.

    He had no where to go but up...of course it looks like he did something. I would love to work for you...big raise and much praise for very little. Congrats on the yummy kool-aid.

    His moves have been aggressive and definitive. Chayka didn't just luck into a few good players.

    You seem to be conveniently forgetting the futility of the franchise pre Chayka, including the FOG years. Must be nice.

    Garland is gonna be a consistent 25 goal scorer.

    Keller is gonna be a consistent 25 assist getter...

    He is not brilliant (yet). Nobody is saying Chayka gets no credit, I think we are saying he isn't considered elite (yet). Yes we have bounced back, but even a dead cat bounces once. Lets get into the playoffs one year in a row:)

    You seem to forget that no one has had the $$$ to work with, and did not have the NHL breathing down your neck. Speaking of futility, Chayka has not taken us out of futility as of today. To be honest, the only thing Chayka has done is put us in cap hell. He also hired this coach who you want fired.

    The old saying is you build great teams from drafting. And you don’t need a big budget to draft good players. So if you you’re going to sell the idea that Maloney’s drafts his last 3 or 4 years we’re better than Chayka’s first three then good luck with that.

    :)

    Results matter, Chayka's draft picks look fine, no results yet:)

    Keller is a joke. His stick to the dick shenanigans, on Monday was unacceptable. He can train all he wants, the reality is he is averse to contact and it's limiting.

    In 2015, Maloney let Chayka make one selection at the draft.

    That selection? Conor Garland.

    It depends..... this is HF where results don;t matter. People are just as grumpy when we win as when we lose. ;)

    He also told Maloney to sign Brad Richardson when he first got on board with the team. I think his evaluation skills for both prospects and free agents are probably the best the team has ever had (bar might be pretty low though).

    Let me see.... Garland $775,000 until 21/22....Keller $7,150,000 end of this season. Garland 20 goals, 15 assists 62 games....Keller 13 goals, 24 assists 63 games.
    No brainer Garland is tenacious, never stops skating, willing to take any amount of punishment on the ice and Keller just kinda floats would rather throw the puck away than take a hit.
    Sit Keller adjust the lines bring Hayton in and see if this team can finally start getting some goals (7th lowest in the league) and more importantly wins!!
