Hawks give up the best player here to solve two problems- upgrade on defense and fill the 2C spot with a real center. Coyotes get Hossa to provide offense, but also fits in quite nicely with the Coyote's very strong defensive system. Hjalmarsson is included as a body that can fill a spot on the Coyotes' defense, but also with Yandle coming over the Hawks would need to clear some cap, and I just assume PHX would rather have Hjalmarsson than Oduya, Montador, Frolik, or Olesz. Hjalmarsson is ideal as a bottom pairing defenseman, which would allow some of the Coyotes up and coming defenders larger roles in which to grow in the top 4 spots.
Phoenix should take this and run. It's a pretty unrealistic offer in my opinion.
