NHL Morning Links - Oct. 17

Our Wednesday slate of content here at ESPN Insider was pretty intriguing. Mike Ribeiro struggled during the initial portion of his tenure with the Coyotes, but Craig Custance delved into why he should produce at a higher level for the rest of the season. Meanwhile, Neil Greenberg looked at the data to find out if there was such a thing as a sophomore slump in the NHL, and there is, but only for defensemen; Greenberg offered insight as to why that might be the case. And of course, no Wednesday is complete without Victoria Matiash's lap around the NHL with a fantasy spin on each item in Fantasy Grapevine. Let's take our lap this morning in the links.
