Phoenix has an interesting core at center.

Their only problem will be defensively as they do have good defensemen, but they lack a better overall. They have a good core, but they are lacking some true depth. Not misunderstand me, they do have depth, but not enough yet to be in the top 10 of the league. Although, I do believe the Yotes will be in the playoffs this year.

Not only Jovocop... Sauer gets injured for 20-30 games each season. He's very important for their second pairing.

And Derek Morris is no all-star on the D side of the game, so when Jovo and Sauer are injured, it looks pretty bleek defensively for the Yotes.

Don't forget about Zbynek Michael and Keith Yandle, two young guys starting to come into their own. The Yotes' defense won't be so bad.

I really can't see them giving up one of Mueller and Turris. They are Blue Chip prospects. Its almost the equivalent of asking Chicago for Toews or Kane... its not gonna happen.

Hanzal maybe, but the price will still be steep.

Maybe we should look towards the Blues and see if they would part with Oshie or Berglund.

Finding that 'elusive' center will probably come down to drafting and developing one internally.

I didn't say they would be bad, but there is a lack of depth, with some of them prone to injuries and others who lack experience. To me, that's still a D that has several issues.

Similar to TB's.

I was under the impression thay Hanzal played on the wing for them last year. Mueller and Turris are untouchable. Boedker was just drafted as well as Tikhonov (another centre), the overager. Both of them could possibly make the team this year. Add players like Brett MacLean and Kevin Porter up front, as well as Yandle, Summers and Ross at the back-end. Don't forget they acquired Al Montoya from the Rangers too. In a couple of years the Coyotes could be a very exciting team.

But with that depth down the middle, perhaps the Habs can try and get Kevin Porter who played with Pacioretty in Michigan.

I doubt it would cost that much for Porter. He's not a highly touted prospect. He's good, yes, but clearly overshadowed on the depth chart by others, which is no secret to GM's in the league.

I agree to some extand. It's seem that at this moment, we are in need imo. Sometime, it nice to be able to exchange for the benifit of both team. In my early proposal, I beleive that it was a big payment but with equal value with perhaps better in the future coming the habs way. It was Higgins, Bouillon and Mcdonaugh for either Mueller or Hanzal. Both are big, yougn and good hockey sense with offencive upside CENTRE. Hanzal being the bigest at 6"5 and 205+lbs is more of a project. Mueller is not a great skater but he's ahead and perhaps to stay between the 2.
