Mike Smith is frustrated after having gone through another campaign without a playoff berth.
"It sucks," Smith said. "It sucks. It’s the NHL. You play to play in the playoffs. When you’re out of the playoffs for five years in a row, I think it really leaves a bad taste in your mouth. You want to be playing this time of year. That’s why you play 82 games, to compete for the Stanley Cup. Fell quite short again this year. Personally, I don’t think it’s acceptable." Arizona last made the playoffs in 2012 and this season the Coyotes didn't even come close. Despite that, the Coyotes have a lot of great prospects on its squad and it's possible that they'll take a big leap forward next season if they have strong campaigns. We certainly wouldn't bet on Arizona getting back into the playoffs in 2017-18, but it's not something that should be dismissed out of hand either. Apr 11 - 8:54 AM
