Roenick: In the for the long haul
"I'm not going to bail because things are bad. I'm committed to this city, this team and Wayne (Gretzky). . . . I love this team. I would never ask for a trade or retire in mid-season. I couldn't do that to my players. That would be too much of a huge copout. If I couldn't do it physically, that's a different story. But I feel I'm at the point where I can dominate a hockey game with the puck."You almost wonder if this comes as good or bad news for Gretzky.
In other news, the Coyotes are having a look at Mikael Tellqvist to fill their backup goaltending role. Tellqvist currently has a 3.95 goals-against average with the AHL's Toronto Marlies.
