Which would probably mean adding that 1st round pick, at the very least in order to make Colorado consider it.
As far as adding more roster pieces and fewer futures, I just can't do it. Phoenix is in "now" mode much moreso than Colorado.

As for the other point, the 2nd to 1st pushes overall value (not considering "fit") too far in the other direction for my taste. Personally, I couldn't stomach it. That's just me. I'm sure 9/10 of my fellow Coyotes fans would agree on that.

(Before anyone says anything, I'm aware that our opinions as fans don't actually count. However, since our GMs don't have accounts here, there is no point in us discounting our own opinions if we are going to go through the trouble of discussing trades).

All of it is Dave Tippett's fault. He's the worst.
