Latest Eklund Top 35 UFA rumors

5. Andy Sutton (Columbus, Colorado, Phoenix, NY Islanders)
10. Josef Melichar (Detroit, Columbus, Phoenix)
13. Robert Esche (Tampa, Phoenix, Anaheim)
16. Jussi Markkanen (Carolina, Columbus, Phoenix, Dallas)
32. Mike Johnson (Nashville,Phoenix, NYI, NJ)
33. Patrick Stefan (Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Florida)

Why do we need another goalie or defensemen? What do these guys bring that we don't already have?

I would not be totally upset if Maloney signed Johnson AND Stefan.

I don't know why Johnson would come back here. His words from last summer:

"It's certainly going to be much different than Phoenix," Johnson said. "And that's a good thing.

"I'm looking forward to playing where people are passionate about their team and care about how the team's doing. I'm excited to be back in a hockey town."


Eff him. I don't want him back.

Other than that, two defensemen (don't need them), two backup goalies (don't need them), and a soft, injury prone, third line center (no thanks).

None of those make any sense for PHX.

Do you blame him? He never said anything bad about Phoenix or their fans ... he just told it like it is. I won't blame him for that.

Phx is in need of offense for next year. The players they have are overpaid. signing some ufas to a reasonable contract (different from the barnett era) will free up those overpriced players for trades.

Those statements are less damaging to player/team relations then JR's parting shots when he left the first time. He was brought back for a second stint.

I am not convinced that Johnson would be a great signing but his comments would not keep me from bringing him back if I was GM.

Johnson said that??? Seriously, I thought that was word-for-word what Comrie said after he was traded.

The guys that Johnson had the most chemistry with are gone and we have younger guys that are capable of producing what he did during his time here, so I'd hope that the Coyotes don't bring him back. I don't think that we need another center either, especially one that has never played a full season.
