We have so much resources back defensively and our offensive counterpart is definatively Edmonton. Sooner or later the just have to screen among their talent, to not only waste their value and talent but also give room for qualification spots.
Jordan Eberle is one of the golden nuggets I'ld like, but it feels like grasping towards clouds.
Ignoring value, since I'm horrible at that; If you are proposing the Coyotes do both of these deals the team suddenly isn't so lush with resources on the back end. Anything is possible but it seems to me that Gormley is almost a guarantee to be a high level NHL contributor for years. IMO you don't trade that for a center whose offensive ceiling I question.
And there is no chance Chicago trades Toews.
My main philosophy with what to do with our devensive resources is, I'd rather have an outstanding defense + goal-tending with mediocre forwards than oustanding goal-tending with average forwards and defense. That's what these types of trades do IMO, and that makes winning on a budget impossible.
