• What does it say about Nikolai Zherdev, when he’s only 24 years old, is one goal shy of 100 in the National Hockey League, is a free agent, and only teams with 10-foot poles want to touch him?
• Yes, Jeremy Roenick could talk and make you laugh, but the guy could play, too. A bunch. He’s borderline Hall of Fame and may be able to talk his way in.
• The math on Jerry Reinsdorf’s apparent offer for the Coyotes is somewhat startling. It goes something like this: He wants $23 million US, or thereabouts, in lease concessions from the City of Glendale, wants to deal Wayne Gretzky out of the game by not paying him his $8 million a year, and get some $15 million in revenue sharing annually from the NHL. In other words, he figures that, with $43 million in handouts, he has a chance to break even.
