Pavelski and Clowe will join their new club in Philadelphia as they were acquired on All-Star weekend from the Penguins.

Phoenix, Arizona

Michael Cammalleri who was the sole representative from the Coyotes showed up and meant business. Playing on the 3rd line with line mates Getzlaf and Burrows, Cammi made every minute count as he scored the first goal of the game at 11:25 assisted from Ryan and Burrows to put the West up early. The line read like this: Cammalleri played a total of 16 minutes with 1 goal and an assist along with a +2 and 6 shots on goal.

The West came out on top and now Cammalleri can look forward to helping his club climb the bottom of the West to a playoff spot. "I must say I did enjoy myself, its a different atmosphere and sure hope to comeback in the future." an elate Cammalleri stated.

His club was busy during the all-star break in making a move that was on the ropes for several weeks. The Penguins and Coyotes gm's went back and forth for many days trying to figure out a deal that would work salary wise and talent wise. Both clubs decided to go ahead in a making a deal after both teams struggled to get secondary scoring from their respective clubs.

The Penguins land their hands on Travis Zajac who at 25 is at a cross road, the young kid put up 40 Points with the Thrashers last season in his full season but so far struggled early with his previous club and even with a change the youngster still was unable to find consistency. Along with Zajac the Pittsburgh brass as also decided to give Thomas Vanek a shot, the pure scoring machine who was also acquired in the same deal from the Thrashers earlier on by the Coyotes was never at easy and Vanek who signed a long term deal as yet to figure out how to get going. Vanek saw is goal total drop from 35 in season 4 and 5 to 25 in season 6. Can he find his mark? Only he as the answer.

Larouche on the other hand landed a player he was after for a long time and now hopes he can provide the secondary scoring the club needs behind all-star Cammalleri and team point leader Tomas Plekanec. Joe Pavelski had break through year last season with a total of 27 goals and 67 points with the Pens but like the players he was dealt for as yet to be able to put in a consistent effort with 22 points in 42 contests. Along with Pavelski the Coyotes also landed a power forward who could be the answer to their first lines smallish duo with Ryane Clowe. Clowe is a big monster at 6'4 and 225 pounds, and he may get a chance to push his goal total way up if he can play to his strength and drive to the net to take advantage of Cammi's rebounds or the vision of Pleky. The rugged forward currently as 5 goals and 18 points in 42 games and both players will join their new club who have a day off on Monday and will play the Flyers on Tuesday in Philadelphia.

The Coyotes who have lost 2 in a row look to turn things around after a horrible first half that saw them sit at 17-21-5 with a meager 39 points and sitting at 13 in the Western Conference standing. No where near the club as been the last couple of years. Let's hope the club can right the ship and make a push for a 3rd season of playoff hockey.
