Plugging Holes -- Phoenix Coyotes

The Hole: Wingers who can score

Phoenix had the 24th-ranked offense in the league in 2009-10. This is partly a result of coach Dave Tippett's emphasis on defense, but with only one 20-goal scorer (Radim Vrbata) and just two players over 50 points (Shane Doan, Matthew Lombardi), Phoenix was winning games on very tight margins. The Coyotes led the NHL in one-goal wins with 29 -- and with Ilya Bryzgalov likely to return to earth a bit after an outstanding Vezina-nominated season, the team needs to add some punch up front to avoid dropping in the standings.
