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.
Tavares is probably going to be roughly equivalent to Spezza this year. 2/3 years into the future, I would expect that he would significantly outperform Spezza. So yes, that makes him much more valuable to a team that is just entering a window of contention.

You would need much more than those to land Yandle. If you can put together a package that starts with a top-six forward, then add another blue-chip forward prospect, then you would definitely get the Coyotes attention. Anything short of that, Yandle would be out of your reach.
