Also I stand by the deal I proposed:

Zibanejad, 1st 2013 and Bishop for Yandle. It works for both teams.

Someone suggested trading Spezza for Yandle would be fair? Oy.
A prospect, a draft pick and a back up goalie for Keith Yandle works for BOTH teams? Haha. That's rich.

That works for Phoenix like firing an RPG into the dressing room just before warm ups works for Phoenix. It blasts the hell out of any chance we have at qualifying for the playoffs. Ridiculous to expect Phoenix would even consider such a thing. We aren't shooting for a lotto pick, here. Smith will be back in net by week's end, and if I'm giving up a first pairing D just entering his prime, I want a C for the parent club, not one who will be learning the ropes for our minor league affiliate. Makes absolutely no sense for a competitive team.
