If Nashville is anywhere close to the playoffs (and they likely will be) they won't deal either player. At least one of them will re-sign.

Yandle is a non-starter of a conversation.

Pronger may try to come back as well and with a new CBA could come a rollback in the cap which could quickly put Philli back into cap hell. Rozsival's UFA status at the end of the year might offer flexibility for the Flyers that they might find desirable. The cap hit is high though (salary is much lower than cap hit) which is negative. I don't think Phoenix would be looking for much more than a draft pick and maybe a salary (to improve the value of the pick).
