With Arizona sitting dead last in the standings league-wide, it would be reasonable to think that GM John Chayka may be looking to shake things up. However, he told Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports that this isnt likely to be the case:

Ive had numerous discussions on a lot of different players. If theres a chance to make our team better Ill do it, but in the past there was a lot of need for guys to get a fresh start or to infuse youth. There were some underlying changes we were trying to make. I dont think thats the case any longer.

I think the core players are in place and they need some time and some experience surrounded by the right players. Weve got some pieces in place that we like. Now, were just seeing if there are some things we can tweak to try and improve. There is nothing underlying that I think needs a significant change.

While the Coyotes may inevitably need more than tweaks, Chayka may also prefer to wait until the offseason to make his more significant changes.
