The Hockey News Podcast: Are the 2019-20 Red Wings the worst team of the salary-cap era?

Is Detroit icing the worst NHL team of the millennium? Are the Coyotes finally for real? Who should be the Devils' next long-term coach? And more.

This week on The Hockey News Podcast:

- The Arizona Coyotes are tied for first place in the Pacific Division. Has GM John Chayka finally done it? Can we take this team seriously?

- Can the New Jersey Devils right the ship with John Hynes out as head coach? Who makes the most sense as a long-term successor?

- Nathan MacKinnon says he has no regrets about his current team-friendly contract and plans to take another discount when he goes UFA. Do we believe him? Is that what it takes to win today?

- Live listener Q&A
