GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Phoenix Coyotes went into their first season with new owners with plenty of expectations. They ended it in the same place they were last season: Out of the playoffs. Phoenix had a chance to earn the final Western Conference playoff spot, but lost seven of its final eight games to finish two points behind eighth-place Dallas. Now the Coyotes must decide what to do during the offseason, whether to give younger players more of a chance or change the core of the team.
