In net, they will roll three goaltenders to start the season, looking for the hot hand that will guide them through the year. This does look to be a bit of a crap shoot, which could lead down the path of uncertainty. Right now, at day one, you almost have to assume that David Aebischer (Marcus) is the number one guy, but even he has had some shaky times in his career. Mikael Tellqvist (Box 12) and Alex Auld will also get some looks, which may reduce overall playing times for everyone at the beginning of the season.

|Niko Kapanen||Mike Zigomanis||Mike York|
|Josh Gratton||Fredrik Sjostrom||Mathias Tjarnqvist|
|Dan Carcillo||Martin Hanzal||Peter Mueller|
|Ed Jovanovski||Zbynek Michalek|
|Keith Ballard||Derek Morris|
|Nick Boynton||Brendan Bell|
The Coyotes are sitting on the league minimum for payroll, but with Mueller and Hanzal in the line-up all year, they should be in line for some rookie bonuses come the end of the year, to bump up their figures to the acceptable mark.
