EDITOR'S NOTE: Coyotes icon Jeremy Roenick answered questions from fans on Sunday night on the team's official Twitter account via #AskJR:

Q1. What do you miss most about playing?
A1. I miss that intimate feeling of being on the ice, on the stage, in front of the fans. The fan/player relationship. - JR

Q2. Which current player in the NHL plays most like you did?
A2. I don't think there's any - really. I'd say Corey Perry is closest. But I was faster and I hit more. - JR

Q3. What type of music did you listen to before games?
A3. At the beginning I was into Rock n Roll - Ozzy Osbourne. Then later I got into dance music - 70's disco. - JR

Q4. What is your opinion on Mark Arcobello?
A4. I like him. He's a responsible player. He's scoring goals - he's young & he's had a nice start. Still too early to judge. - JR

Q5. What was the best hockey moment of your career?
A5. Probably the 2002 Gold Medal Olympic Game. My first All-Star game in Chicago. Scoring my 500th goal. Those 3 moments. - JR

Q6. If you could play with one player on the #Coyotes currently, who would you like to play with?
A6. I really enjoy watching @Mikkelboedker play. He's fast, he can score and he can do some of the dirty work for me. – JR

Q7. What are your thoughts on how the Coyotes are rebuilding for the future? 
A7. There's no choice in the matter. It's time to rebuild. - JR

Q8. When you get into the HHOF, what team jersey do you want to be inducted in?

Q9. You signed my jersey and a picture for me for my sixth birthday so I just wanted to say thank you for being so nice to me.
A9. Thanks a lot - it took you long enough to thank me. You're very welcome. LOL. - JR
