Staal for Yandle in the WCF doesn't beat the kings.
The Coyotes had a great run and it was commendable, but they have some serious deficiencies which make it a run not likely to be repeated. Career years from aging players, some breakout playoff performances, and Smith playing out of his mind. The odds of just one of those things happening again next season isn't so hot.

And if we are going to go the route of "when was the last time X won the cup", when was the last time a team with no owner in the bottom 1/3rd of spending won the cup?

Staal just isn't that good either. Sure he'd instantly be number one on this team but so would a lot of centers. Toss in the fact that Staal's deal expires and its just insane and terrible asset management.

Not untouchable, but worth more than Staal. Adding random crap picks that won't be a factor till 2015 or roster players won't even it either.
