So I really don't know what type of trade would make sense with them for him (unless they're scrambling to trade him).
That's one of the bigger reasons why I think now is the time to acquire him. Not only is he not having a very good season (by his standards at least), but Buffalo looks to be a team that will be selling at the deadline as they're not in contention for the playoffs. The problem is that if they're moving a physical right wing, they're going to be looking for a similar, younger player in return. And who fits that bill from the Wild? Coyle.
