I've been on record for awhile now that Phoenix is a lottery team that overachieves due to their coaching and playing style.
I think we'll be in a position where we will be out of it by the deadline and some of the other issues will force Maloney into making some moves.
My pure speculation:
1) Doan to Chicago for a package based around Center prospect McNeil. Rangers may be other suitors who would have to include JT Miller in their package. Red Wings and Vancouver likely also in on it but both lack the Center prospect in particular that Phoenix so desperately needs in their system. Phoenix will also have to take a salary on.
2) Roszival to Flyers for a 2nd round pick. Yeah, he's a rental and his cap hit sucks but he is cheaper than some of the other scenarios and doesn't completely handcuff the franchise at season's end with a new CBA and the potential return of Pronger at some point.
3) Whitney to Boston for a 1st round pick and a salary. Red Wings might also be in on Whitney.
