Holland’s arrival may allow the team to move Martinook back to wing where he would likely be more effective at the NHL level.
It could also result in a youngster like Dvorak spending more time in the press box or in Tucson.
That’s not an outcome we’d like to see in a season that is already all but lost regarding playoff hopes. If nothing else comes out of this season, the kids who remain need to see their ice time increase, not decrease, so that they can build a solid foundation for next season and beyond.
Hopefully management can find a way to utilize Holland without taking playing time away from the youth.
For Peter Holland’s part, he’s just happy to get an opportunity.
Peter Holland is thrilled to get a fresh start with #coyotes. The end of his time in Toronto was tough on the 25-year-old centre.
