In terms of players who are slumping in the last few years that have a lot of scoring touch and natural ability who need a change of scenery, no forward fits the bill in the Western Conference more than the son of Toronto Maple Leafs legendary grinder Tie Domi, 22-year-old left wing Max Domi.
With just four goals and 26 points on the season, on the roster of the league’s worst team, Domi needs to find greener pastures. This skilled forward showed us all what he can do in the last season where the Arizona Coyotes reached the 35-win mark, in 2015-16.
The 2015-16 season was also the first year for Domi in the league. He racked up 52 points in 81 games and contributed a ton to the limited success that the Coyotes had that season. Domi also finished up sixth in the Calder Trophy voting.
Where Domi fits in with the Canes is similar to that of Bennett. Both players are not producing at the levels expected of them, and joining a faster and younger group of forwards would benefit them. Domi, especially, could use the added motivation of joining a team in playoff contention.
