If that's not enough, GMDM has explicitly stated he's not moving Yandle unless its for an overpayment centered on legit impact forwards (plural!), not futures. So sorry, but there's less than zero chance you'll be getting our two-time All Star, who's 2nd this year in goals scored among d-men in the entire league, for just a draft pick. Even if it is in the Top 10 of a top-heavy draft.
Their is a chance the team isn't even in Phoenix next year though.
You're right a player like Yandle can't just be easily replaced but if their is one position that Phoenix can afford to trade from it'd be the D position because Gormley and Rundblad are on the way.
