Gordon's faceoff skills and ability to play in the defensive zone late in tight games makes him too important for Tippett's system. He replaced Fiddler and I would say did a better job for the money.

Klesla was an unexpected surprise. I thought he would just provide depth until he got injured again, but he was one of the best defensemen in the playoffs and he formed a really tight pairing with Schlemko for most of the season until Schlemko got injured. He's certainly a tradeable asset because of the depth, but he's not going to be given away when he's played so well and has a good contract.

Coyotes don't have a lot of needs right now, so unless an offer with a high ceiling center comes along, the Yotes will probably stand pat.
