And they have Rundblad, Murphey, Gormley, top young D prospects plus Ekman-Larson so they could afford to move either a D prospect or Yandle.

I think Phil could be perfect as a top line winger for Hanzal going forward.

I would think a couple different deals could be worked out between the teams - maybe a Yandle for Kessel swap? A Coyotes first and a prospect and a contract?

With the Coyotoes situation they definitely need to keep winning and making the playoffs so if a case can be made for any team to trade a first or part with prospects for immediate scoring help its them. Nashville could use the scoring as well and would also be a solid fit for Phil
Why do the leafs need Yandle? OEL+

Just thought I'd throw it out there
Such a stupid thing to do.
And by 1st overall u mean 1st rounder.

Leafs trade by far the best piece and possibly the 2nd best piece (at worst 3rd best piece)

Huge no.
