As his tenure with the Phoenix Coyotes nears a close, blueliner Ed Jovanovski will start to shop himself around as an unrestricted free agent this Friday.
The Florida Panthers could be interested in Jovanovski . And George Richards of the Miami Herald suggests the veteran defenseman may be "willing to come back". Jovanovski started his NHL Picks career (played three and a half seasons) with the Panthers back in 1995.
In terms of defensemen, Christian Ehrhoff and James Wisniewski, and to a lesser extent Tomas Kaberle, are considered the cream of the unrestricted free agent crop. Although the Panthers would love to snag a player like Wisniewski, competition amongst other squads (Detroit Red Wings, Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Rangers etc.) will be tough. Jovanovski's potential return to Florida feels well within reason. All the teams 2012 Stanley Cup odds are now posted for view. Check out Sportsbooks betting odds daily.
