HOW ARE THE ‘YOTES DEALING WITH THINGS?

What’s it like playing in the uncertain hockey environment of Phoenix?

*****

Jim Gintonio of the Arizona Republic talked to Scottie Upshall:

“It’s like hearing yourself in trade rumors — it’s almost like your whole team is going to get traded,” Upshall said.

“For us, we love where we are … We want to make it work.”

Still, the bottom line is that the business of sport is also the business of making money. That link in Phoenix these days is less than tenuous, and players are fully aware of that.

 ” … It’s really out of our control, and if somwhere else can support a hockey team, then you want to see that work, as well,” he said. “(We can) just go out and put a good product out there, play hard, win games, make the playoffs. That’s all a player can control.”
