I don't think Staal is worth Yandle straight up and the mixed bag of crap we'd get as a throw in isn't enough to add it up because we'd still be bringing back the lesser player.

Yandle was too good in 2010-2011 and still pretty elite in 11-12 to be dumping him for a center who isn't a top 30 center in the game.

The Richards/Carter/Kovalchuk deals were bringing the better player back to the team in the totality of the deal. That is the kind of deal you make when looking to win and aren't similar at all to this deal. I'd rather trade Yandle + for a center better than Staal, and if one isn't available keep Yandle. Though I'd probably keep Yandle anyway because I agree with Pho that the Coyotes really are not stacked on the back end yet.
