1 Phoenix Coyotes name new Head Coach on Sat Jan 11, 2014 10:22 pm

(commercial fades back to the Fox SportsOne studio)

Jay Donrait: Jay Donrait here with the new General Manager of the Phoenix Coyotes, David Spang.  David, why did you choose the Phoenix Coyotes of all teams to manage?

David Spang:  Well Jay I liked the promise I saw with this orginization.  I had a few other job offers but I wanted a challenge.  As we saw last season the Coyotes finshed 20th
overall and were not the most consist team.  I wanted to become the general manager to turn this often overlooked franchise and turn it in to a Stanley Cup contender and hopefully Champion!

Jay Donrait:  That is going to be a tall order as you don't really have a pile of veteran talent on this team.

David Spang:  That is true Jay, but we do have a lot of young potential future stars , lots of cap room and 10 draft picks in the NHL Draft including 2 first round picks.  

Jay Donrait:  I have heard some rumblings that you have been in contact with a former player from your past to become the head coach of the Coyotes.  Is this true or just rumors?

David Spang:  Jay, that is true.  I would like to announce here that the next head coach of the team will be Garry Valk.  

Jay Donrait:  Wow!  Are you a little worried about him not having any head coaching experience?

David Spang:  Nope.  When I took a chance on him as a player, you all remember that he went from being a fourth line player to being a top line left winger who usually lead the team in scoring.  I have talked with him and that same drive that made him excel as a player is now the same drive that I know will make him excel as a head coach.

Jay Donrait:  I guess time will tell.  There is also some rumblings that you are going to be naming some possible trades soon.  Would you like to confirm that?

David Spang:  Jay,  you know I am not going to say anything like that until we have the deals made.  That would be unfair to anybody involved.  I know I have had other general managers call to try to make a quick pitch to see if I would give up the farm for a bad contract.  I will only be willing to make a deal tat will better the team.

Jay Donrait:  Well thank you for joining us tonight.  Good luck with the Phoenix Coyotes.

Knew it! Figured Valk would end up being your coach or you'd somehow get him added to the player pool.
