It is actually completely random that it's been exactly a week since I posted a Coyote Tracks.  I really do mean to get these up every day but between being quite busy and there being almost no news to report, it's just not a high priority.  But there was a bunch of stuff that I saw on the Coyotes website that was worth directing people towards, so I figured I'd throw this up today...

DOAN SERVES AS HONORARY CAPTAIN FOR ARIZONA CARDINALS - Phoenix Coyotes - Features
Coyotes captain Shane Doan served as an honorary captain for the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night at their first preseason game of the season.  Personally, I was super pissed that ABC didn't show any video of Doan going out for the coin toss or anything, but his interview in the booth was pretty good.  The picture gallery linked to at the bottom of the article is also pretty cool.

COYOTES ROOKIES TO PLAY L.A. KINGS ROOKIES AT JOBING.COM ARENA - Phoenix Coyotes - News
Rookie Camp schedule has been released as well as the annual match-ups with the Kings rookies.  Good times!  Hopefully I'll find some time to get out there and see OEL and the rest of the rookies hit the ice.

COYOTES HIRE BREWER AS VICE PRESIDENT OF MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS - Phoenix Coyotes - News
Sounds like this guy has some experience and should have some ideas to grow the Coyotes marketing in the Valley...here's hoping it includes allowing access for bloggers as a way to bring fans a unique perspective.

Which mega-contract would you actually accept? - From The Rink
Hossa. Luongo. Lecavalier. These players and more -- and possibly Ilya Kovalchuk -- are all signed to contracts of 10 years or more. Would you actually commit to a player that long?

Video: Every day should be Patrick Kane's day with the Stanley Cup - Puck Daddy - NHL  - Yahoo! Sports
And finally, Patrick Kane really is quite something.  I just hope that before Kyle Turris grows out of his boyish charms, he gets to do things that are quite this crazy...

Ok, hopefully there will be some more big news right around the corner and we'll get this place jumping again before September...
