Stastny's contract is toxic to a cap floor team. You're paying 6.6 mil for what seems like a 50 point center. He is actually slightly older than Yandle, makes over a million more, isn't signed past the next season, and doesn't offer a significant increase in production vs Yandle. Why would the Coyotes do such a thing? The Avs would have to add. Before the offersheet, ROR objectively had way more value than Stastny.

To be honest, this is all kind of a moot point as rt pointed out. The Coyotes will either have an owner, and thus money less of an issue, or they will be gone. Moving means trading away salary like Morris and Doan. It's depressing but that's how it is, right now. The bill is coming due for OEL, Boedker and Smith, so there's no way the Coyotes come out the other side of this offseason looking similar to what they have now. There's a good chance they have a new name and colors too.
