Yandle commands a king's ransom in trade, due to his age and contract. Value for 'value' trades are pointless when discussing Yandle because he is more valuable to the Coyotes than what the market might otherwise bare. Maloney has stated that it will take serious assets to pry him lose. I'm not really interested in Kronwall, Franzen or Datsyuk. Those players do nothing for the Coyotes in the long term. We're talking about a team that can't possibly go out and sign those guys, so any homegrown asset has to be managed carefully. Blow it, even once, and you set back your franchise years. The only reason the Coyotes have even entertained the idea is because there's some Swedish kid running around on the ice 25 minutes a night for them.
