I took the old Schwartz for Gormley dead back to the Trade Forum, and got basically the same response: Solid Value, but not something Coyotes fans wanted to pull the trigger on.

However a very interesting counter offer from Pittsburg has been talked about: Jaden Schwartz for Simon Despres. Despers seems like a perfect fit for Petro's partner in the long term, and reading through his strengths reads like a "what we want Petro's partner to be" description. The value isn't particularly high, but with our glut of talent on the wings everywhere in the organization, I think this is a trade that improves us right now. Despres seems to be ready to line up at the NHL level today, and we don't lose anything that hurts us now in the short term, and while losing Schwartz as McDonald's replacement hurts in the long term, who knows how long exactly that's going to be.

Just curious on how many others agree that this is a solid trade for us
