The Arizona Coyotes are a Joke

The Arizona Coyotes have been really struggling in the last few years. They've had disappointing seasons, struggled to get top players, and even have to play in a college arena, which is a bit embarrassing. All of this has made them a joke in the NHL.
Recently, they did something that made them stand out even more. They signed Jack McBain to a two-year contract. There were rumors that he would be paid $1.6 million, and surprisingly, the actual salary was almost the same.
The funny part is that McBain was a RFA and could have gone through a arbitration hearing to decide his salary. But instead, they agreed on a salary of $1,599,999, just one dollar less than the rumored amount.

An odd Contract

It's unclear why they settled on such an odd figure. Maybe McBain wanted $1.6 million but was okay with one dollar less to close the deal. Or maybe the Coyotes wanted to keep his salary below $1.6 million and convinced him to accept the slightly lower offer.
Whatever the reason, it's pretty ridiculous to think that such a small difference caused so much fuss. This kind of situation just adds to the Coyotes' reputation as an odd and laughable team in the NHL.
You can check out the official announcement of the deal in the tweet below.
