It seems like ages ago that Curtis Joseph was stealing the spotlight in Edmonton and Toronto with his trademark acrobatic saves.

Well the veteran goalie is as pumped about his 17th NHL season as he's been for any other and believes this year's version of the Phoenix Coyotes will get him back to the playoffs.

After helping a young and rebuilding club to a respectable 38-39-5 record last season, the 39-year-old native of Keswick, Ont., has loftier goals for his team this season.

''Oh absolutely, the expectations are higher,'' Cujo said Wednesday. ''Anything short of making the playoffs would be deemed a failure - even though it's extremely competitive to make the playoffs. But certainly we feel that's in our future, that's the feeling in the locker-room, that once we get in maybe we can make some noise.''

The off-season additions of defencemen Ed Jovanovski and Nick Boynton as well as veteran forwards Owen Nolan, Jeremy Roenick and top tough guy Georges Laraque have the Coyotes thinking bigger.
