50% Chance Of Stempniak Returning To Phoenix

from Dave Vest of The Desert Dog Blog at Coyotes.com,

The Coyotes had several conversations with Lee Stempniak’s agent last week and would still like to sign him to a one-year contract at the right price. I’m told Stempniak, an unrestricted free agent who scored 14 goals in 18 regular-season games but zero goals in seven playoff games for the Coyotes, would prefer a deal longer than one year.

“We’re having discussions and I think we have a 50-50 chance to sign Lee,” Maloney said. “We’d love to have him back. I think he fits with us and would help our offense.”

more Phoenix talk…

added 6:26pm, from Bob Duff of Duffer’s Dabbles at the Windsor Star,

Entering the last year of his contract with the Phoenix Coyotes, Windsor’s Ed Jovanovski is of the belief that the National Hockey League is doing the right thing by fighting tooth and nail to keep the franchise in Arizona.

“I still think it’s a market that can do well,” Jovanovski said. “We still don’t know how it’s going to come out. I have one year left on my contract and we’re staying there this year. I’m excited about that. I hope that everything gets resolved and the team stays in Phoenix. It’s a great place to live, a great place to raise a family.”
