The DFO Rundown Ep. 219 – It’s time for the Coyotes to leave Arizona

      Published -

      The Conference Finals are finally getting underway after a few days off. Jason and Frank eventually got to previewing the two series that will decide who ultimately battles for The Stanley Cup but first, they had to dive into the story that has been dominating the hockey world for the past 72 hours: the Arizona Coyotes arena drama.

      The league says they’re going back to The Mullett Arena for the 2023-24 season, but why? Frank says it’s not a long-term fix and the league needs to move on and Jason agreed. He also gave his thoughts on some of the rumoured landing spots should the Coyotes finally leave the desert.

      Frank also had some new info on General Manager openings in Calgary and Pittsburgh. He thinks they could have their new hires in place by this time next week. Jason thinks the Flame’s next GM is already in their front office and explained why Craig Conroy would be a great choice to be their next GM.

      Tyler Yaremchuk joined the show to talk with the guys about the upcoming Conference Finals. He got the guys to fill in the rest of the bracket and also asked them about who’s the front-runner to win the Conn Smyth trophy.
