Wildly speculated by Oilers' fans! I believe it was with Pittsburgh and dealt with Michalek, Staal, and then the 'Canes offer for Staal (and why it took so long - 3 team trade). I do not believe for a minute that Maloney would consider trading Yandle for Gags and MPS, not without the #1 pick being involved. If the 'Canes had a decent to offer instead of d'men, KY may be a Penguin at this time. IMO, Michalek, Sutter, Skinner, and the 8th pick might of done it. But now the Coyotes have Michalek, Moss, and Sullivan as additions. I'm glad that GMDM didn't trade Yandle at that time, it wasn't as dire as 1st thought. He did pretty good during the free agency period.
