  Best players to never win a title and how winning impacts the NBA's Greatest 75 Players Vince Carter or Chris Webber. Patrick Ewing or Russell Westbrook. Our SN staff debates who would've benefitting most from an NBA championship.Yeah, that's right their peaks. Not the totality of their careers, the peak of their careers.

The Arizona Coyotes will be without their “starting” goaltender and a top young defenseman for the next several weeks, after Carter Hutton and Conor Timmins suffered injuries Monday night. According to Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports, Hutton is expected to miss between two to four weeks, while Timmins could miss eight to 12 weeks after both sustained lower-body injuries. There was no update on Ryan Dzingel, who also left Monday night’s game.

It’s not like this has any drastic effect on the Coyotes; performance, considering that Arizona is obviously set up for a losing season and hasn’t even registered a single win to this point. But the development of Timmins – who was acquired in the Darcy Kuemper trade this summer –is certainly something to consider. The former Colorado Avalanche defenseman has already missed huge chunks of time due to concussion issues and has just 88 professional games under his belt to this point (NHL and AHL combined). Now 23, he’s already missed so much of his key development years that it’s hard to know whether he’ll ever become the player who starred for the Soo Greyhounds and Team Canada, leading to a selection 32nd overall in 2017.

Blues' Brandon Saad out vs. Kings due to COVID-19

  Blues' Brandon Saad out vs. Kings due to COVID-19 The Blues have announced that forward Brandon Saad will be unavailable on Saturday due to COVID protocol. Saad, as well as the entire Blues roster, is vaccinated. With Saad sidelined and Pavel Buchnevich suspended, the Blues will be without their two major offseason additions for their home opener against the L.A. Kings. © Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports St. Louis Blues left wing Brandon Saad The Blues have not revealed the cause of Saad’s entry into the COVID protocol. However, the fact that he has already been ruled out of a game that is 48 hours away would imply that he has tested positive.

Eight weeks would put a potential return for Timmins just before Christmas, while 12 weeks would be the middle of January.

Hutton meanwhile was ticketed to carry the lion’s share of the goaltending load this season, although that certainly hasn’t gone well to this point. In three appearances he has a .741 save percentage, allowing 15 goals on 58 shots. Karel Vejmelka, a European free-agent signing with no North American experience before this season will now likely be pushed into a full-time starter role. The 25-year-old has appeared in five games, posting an .899 save percentage.

Josef Korenar seems the most likely recall to give Arizona a second goaltender, although there are a few options in the Coyotes system.

Sorokin stops 26 shots in Islanders' 3-0 win over Coyotes

  Sorokin stops 26 shots in Islanders' 3-0 win over Coyotes GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Brock Nelson had a goal and an assist, Ilya Sorokin stopped 26 shots and the New York Islanders kept the Arizona Coyotes winless with a 3-0 victory Saturday night. New York got off to slow starts in the first two periods, but Sorokin made some tough saves for his fourth shutout in 27 career games. Cal Clutterbuck and Anthony Beauvillier also scored for the Islanders, who have five points in three games after two opening losses. “They didn’t give us much really in the game, but we were able to capitalize on some chances and Ilya made a couple of key saves,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said.

Canucks recall veteran defenseman Travis Hamonic .
It’s unclear whether he will be inserted directly into the lineup for Tuesday night’s game against the New York Rangers, but he is obviously an important part of the Canucks when healthy. In 38 games last season, Hamonic averaged more than 19 minutes a night with the vast majority of those coming next to Quinn Hughes. With the team struggling — Vancouver has just three wins in its first nine games — Hamonic will likely be a welcome addition whenever he is added to the lineup sheet.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
