We could move 1 vet and 1 young guy that's ready for full-time action and still be deep. Say we move either Morris or Klesla and one of the young guys. There will easily be 8 guys that can play on the big club. I'm not sure what we could get for 2 of our dmen not named Yandle but I bet DM could put together an attractive package for a scorer.
With the way the Coyotes play and if they want to stay effective, they will need to rotate the 'D' and keep everybody relatively fresh. IMO, ATM, I don't think that anybody can replace Morris or Klesla. We'll see during the season, but I wouldn't expect a trade of either player until, at least, after the playoffs. I don't expect the Coyotes to get a top player and would be very surprise if Maloney does (except for Iginla).
