Boedker's value

Mikkel Boedker has developed into a bright young asset for the Phoenix Coyotes. He enjoys playing in the desert, is a great locker room guy and has evolved considerably as a player since the club took him at No. 8 overall in 2008. Considering the progress the organization as a whole has made under Dave Tippett, keeping the 23-year old winger in Arizona makes quite a bit of sense for both he and the Desert Dogs.
