Phoenix Coyotes: 5 Free Agent Additions the Coyotes Should Make This Offseason

The Coyotes need to make some additions to build on last season's finish

The Phoenix Coyotes are coming off of their most successful season in franchise history. They reached the Western Conference Finals and fell short, losing to the Los Angeles Kings in five games.

The Coyotes have some major decisions to make as they enter the offseason. They need to figure out who to bring in to bolster key spots throughout the lineup.

General Manager Don Maloney technically has a lot of money to work with ($35.4 million under the cap), but with a new ownership group set to take over, Maloney might not have that much to spend. According to the Arizona Republic, Maloney might only have around $9 million to spend on free agents.

This eliminates many of the top free agents from this list. I think every team would like to have a Zach Parise (New Jersey Devils), Ryan Suter (Nashville Predators) or a Alexander Semin (Washington Capitals). These guys would break the bank though and that is why these types of players are not on this list.

This column will explore the top five unrestricted free agents that I think the Coyotes need to pursue.  These five make sense financially and are inside the team concept that head coach Dave Tippett has worked so hard to build over the last couple of seasons. I am looking for a point scoring, defensively cognizant, hard-working and relatively inexpensive group of players. Many of these guys are under the radar, but I think that they would be great fits.
