Around the boards

Some quick hits from around the NHL while the Sabres' prospects conduct on-ice testing:

*The two-day bankrupcy bidding process for the Phoenix Coyotes starts today, and both NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and hopeful bidder Jim Balsillie are expected to go on the stand Friday. The Arizona Republic, though, doesn't expect a resolution until next week. The Toronto Star lays out Judge Redfield T. Baum's agenda.

*Dany Heatley is expected to report to Ottawa amidst growing rumors the Senators may finally be able to trade him, according to the Ottawa Citizen.

*Chris Chelios, 47, tells the Detroit Free Press he may have to start the season with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.

*Theo Fleury, on an indefinite suspension by the NHL for substance abuse, could learn today whether he will be reinstated after six years, according to TSN and the Calgary Sun.
