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.
Yeah I would imagine the actual conversation went something like:

Other team's GM "So Don, what would you want in return for Yandle"

DM "A top line scoring forward"

Other team's GM "Ok, thanks for the info. Talk to you later"
