A clear difference is apparent with Arizona’s Phil Kessel. Last year Kessel arrived from Pittsburgh with great fanfare. He was expected to ignite a stagnant Coyotes offense. Unfortunately, Kessel had a lousy year. And Arizona was left holding an expensive empty bag. However, Kessel is off to a strong start. He leads the Yotes in goal scoring. And has flashed the look of becoming an asset with the NHL betting odds. Vegas is among the favorites in the newly comprised West Division. Coach Pete DeBoer has masterfully manipulated his lineup. Vegas is one of the NHL’s deepest teams.
