ARIZONA COYOTESLAST SEASON: 37-30-15, 89 points. Marshall Newhouse Jersey . Ninth overall in Western Conference.COACH: Dave Tippett, fifth season with Arizona, 156-96-42; In 10th NHL season as coach, 427-252-107.ADDED: C Sam Gagner, C Joe Vitale, RW B.J. Crombeen, G Devan Dubnyk.LOST: RW Radim Vrbata, C Mike Ribeiro, D Derek Morris, LW Paul Bissonnette, G Thomas Greiss.PLAYER TO WATCH: C Antoine Vermette. As Ribeiro struggled late last season, Vermette surged to the forefront as Arizonas top centre. He led the Coyotes with 24 goals last season and is a superb two-way player a a perfect fit for Tippetts defence-first system. A bigger season could be on the horizon as the Coyotes lean on him more.OUTLOOK: The Coyotes should contend for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Arizona lost captain Shane Doan for 12 games due to Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and goalie Mike Smith was out the final 10 games with a knee injury. Even with the injuries, the Coyotes finished two points out of the Wests final playoff spot. Stay relatively healthy and get back to their defensive ways, they might be in the mix again this season. Byron Cowart Jersey . -- Dane Fox scored his 61st and 62nd goals of the season and Brendan Gaunce had a goal and three assists as the Erie Otters downed the Kitchener Rangers 7-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.

The Bulls seem to be getting along fine without him. D.J. Augustin scored 27 points in a start for Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson matched a career high with 26 filling in for Carlos Boozer as the Bulls improved to 7-2 since trading the popular Deng with a 98-87 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.UEFAs proposed changes to the make-up of the Champions League could irreversibly damage Scottish football and other leagues across the continent, according to Scottish Professional Football League chief executive Neil Doncaster. The Champions League is set for an overhaul from 2018, with the top four divisions given four automatic qualifying berths to the group stages, with the move coming about to placate any talk of Europes biggest clubs forming a breakaway competition.The decision, which is yet to be fully ratified, could see the Scottish champions miss out on qualification to what Doncaster claimed would become a closed shop Champions League competition. The threat is very real, very significant, he said at the Leaders 2016 conference held at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.We are only talking about the cycle of 2018-21 but the direction of travel that UEFA have embarked upon is a very dangerous route. UEFAs proposed Champions League changes are set to favour the big leagues It threatens the very future of very top-level football and it is vital that a line is drawn in the sand now and the EPFL (European Professional Football Leagues) take the firm stand that is required and start the pulling back of the very damning proposals.It is important to be a domestic champion club, that is the same across Europe, it is about access to the top-tier of European competitive football with the other champions of European football. Remove that and you fundamentally remove what is important about being a champion in a domestic contest. You would damage irreversibly the mid-level domestic leagues.You would see interest in all the leagues that are excluded inevitably declining and that would damage the game.Asked about the proposed changes, Doncaster added: I have been in the game 20 years, I have never seen the game in Europe as united against a set of proposals. It is unique that you have representatives of the small, large and medium-sized leagues against damaging proposals from UEFA. Toni Kroos in action for Real Madrid during a Champions League game with Borussia Dortmund The closed-shop is the direction of travel a number in Europe would like to see and it is outrageous that UEFA can preside over a situation where that is the direction of travel.The fear is that we end up with a closed-league situation. I was at the Celtic v Manchester City game last week, probably one of the best group games and a fantastic spectacle enjoyed by many across the world.You remove that romance and it is all about money and that is to the detriment of the game, not just in Scottish football but across the world.While the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A are all set to benefit from the new proposals, Lars-Christer Olsson - the chairman of EPFL - has claimed UEFA have broken their memorandumm of understanding with the EPFL by not consulting them over the planned changes. Joe Cardona Jersey. SPFL chief Neil Doncaster (left) fears a negative impact for the Scottish game That has led to a threat from the EPFL to renege on the memorandum and allow their member associations to schedule domestic fixtures that clash with Champions League and Europa League matches. The EPFL will reconvene on 21 October to decide on their next move. The current agreement means, for example, the Premier League could not go head-to-head with the Champions League by arranging a league game for the same kick-off time as a round of European fixtures.Last year, Arsenals FA Cup fifth-round replay at Hull kicked off at 19.00 only after a compromise with UEFA was found as the tie was played in a week in the European calendar. The EPFL are keen to see the Champions League continue to be inclusive for smaller nations But member associations of the EPFL would be free to organise matches at any time if Olsson sees through his threat to alter the current agreement, something he has said could happen if UEFA do not return to the table to discuss the Champions League changes.This is why we are reacting as we are now, they (UEFA) are setting all the conditions for a private, closed league in the future, he said.Theoretically it is a free market, so if a number of clubs would like to set up their own competition they can do that. I dont think they will because domestic competitions are much more important.In my opinion UEFA has forced EPFL to act because UEFA has broken the agreement, we were not at all consulted.

We have to come to a conclusion fairly soon for the best solution for European football and that can only be made by talking to each other.Olsson did say there would be no instances of a team in the Champions League being made to choose between playing in the continental competition or fulfilling a domestic fixture.You have to remember that we are a union of clubs representing the clubs in Europes competitions, he added.We would not create problems for our own clubs because that would not be sensible.
