Something to keep in mind, they are in worse shape financially than us.

With the price and term on Yandle's contract, they could get some nice help up front that is locked-up on good contracts already.

Anyway, not saying this is what they will do. Just that it would make some sense to approach it this way for financial reasons.
They could get great value for Yandle as well, but if the Coyotes want to stay in PHX, they MUST stay competitive. They made there run last season on great defense and goal tending. Add that to the fact they will most likely be way under the cap minimum, makes me think they cant part ways with Yandle. They also need to give Gormley a shot playing in the NHL.
