You're right. Chicago wouldn't trade Kane for Yandle. Primary reason is that he's a similar player to Keith, and Keith is better. It makes no sense to fit him in at #3 since we just recently traded Campbell out of that spot for nothing. The top players Chicago would want are Hanzal and Smith, but then PHX would just be opening up holes on their roster rather than trading for a strength. We only make good trading partners in a prospect deal.
