from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic, “Everybody is in a holding pattern in regards to the deals they can potentially make,” Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney said. “The last number of years August is a quiet month anyway, but this CBA makes it a little quieter than normal.”...
“I don’t foresee a lot happening around here right now,” Maloney said.
That could change if Jamison’s bid to purchase the Coyotes is approved. With that could come the return of Doan, who has loitered on the sidelines of free agency in an attempt to remain with the Coyotes once they’ve secured new ownership.
“We’re still waiting on our ownership situation to be resolved,” Maloney said. “It’s still trending positively. We’re still very optimistic about it. Once that happens, hopefully we can re-sign Shane to a deal that works for both of us.”

Phoenix Coyotes player Paul Bissonnette, who many of you may know by his BizNasty2point0 moniker on Twitter (an account well worth following by the way), has long been a favorite here at SoB, given the hilarious and outlandish tweets he has been known to unleash on the interwebs (“trim ur unit” and “panty soup” anyone?)

This week, he asked for the assistance of Connelly's co-worker Amy Lynn Grover to assist him with his yoga, as seen in the latest edition of Downtime With BizNasty, below.
I respect the hell out of Paul Bissonnette. Well, at least after I watched the video above and googled his name to find out he actually plays in the NHL
Bissonnette who has scored 3 goals in 3+ NHL season has found a way to become an internet sensation having 6x the amount of twitter followers (313,000) than the team he actually plays for the Phoenix Coyotes (56,000).
When I posted the top 20 players by goals versus threshold, Mike Smith of the Phoenix Coyotes leads the league. Given that the goals versus threshold system overly selects goaltending, it is not surprising that a goalie leads the league. Statistically it is clear why Mike Smith leads the league. Three goalies played the majority of their team’s games and all had roughly the...
Phoenix Coyotes GM, Don Maloney, is accustomed to waiting. Thats all he does these days. He sits. He stares at the phone. He sips his ice tea. He waits.
What else can he do? He's virtually handcuffed. The NHL has owned his team for the past three seasons. He's on a short leash in terms of players acquisitions and free agent signings.
