If Owen Nolan is looking for a way to occupy his time in retirement, a quick call to Jeremy Roenick might be just the thing.Seems Roenick wants a piece of the burgeoning Buy-The-Phoenix-Coyotes market, and according to conflicting reports from Greg Wyshinskis PuckDaddy blog at and the Arizona Republic, he either will or wont be involved with former Sharks CEO Greg Jamisons attempt to buy the team.Either way, the Coyotes are the most desired and least desired team in the NHL, because more names pop up to buy them, and then suddenly the books are produced, and the buyers fade back into the dust.The smart money remains on the Coyotes being relocated to Canada, but the NHL doesnt care much where they go as long as the league can stop being the owners. But the idea of Roenick as an owner is frankly too delicious not to contemplate hed be Toronto general manager Brian Burke, only slightly less reticent to talk.In other words, hed be an auctioneer at a Board of Governors meeting.Ray Ratto is a columnist for
