Hansen is very good and would have been 3rd on the Coyotes for even strength points (behind only Whitney and Vrbata) while only making $1.3M while also being solid defensively, tough, and a good penalty killer...guys like that are very hard to give up.
The Coyotes have a better roster than the one that went to the finals. Hanzal is healthy now. Pretty solid down the middle for a change. They should get into the playoffs and Maloney usually brings in help before the deadline.
The Canucks start off without Kesler and Booth, but have a relative easy schedule to start off with. Losing Hansen wouldn't be good for the team right now.
