Phoenix Coyotes post FA Trade Block

Phoenix will have a slightly different trade block that that considered before. Because of the change in signings it changes what Phoenix is looking at. We are happy with the team as is, so none of these are really must go moves, but we are still considering ourselves a rebuilding franchise. So although we acquired guys like Hannan, Staios, Parrish who will make this team more competitive we're still looking at moving our more attractive players that are reaching free agency, or that i feel don't really have a place on this team as it is. We realize with the team we have on paper we have a realistic chance to compete for the playoffs for the first time during my tenure here. However i'm not willing to risk the bigger picture to make the playoffs so acquiring guys like Brunette could kill 2 birds with one stone for Western Conference teams, becasue it will add a top 6 forward to their team, and will take a big shot at one of the teams that will be challenging them for a playoff spot during this upcoming season. Anyways thats enough talking.. on to the list!

FORWARDS

Maxim Afinogenov - RW/LW
Contract: 3 years - 3.5M
Why you may want him: Afinogenov has always been a top 6 scoring threat, and has improved his defensive game after coming back from injury. Afinafter ogenov will likely find somewhere to play, and could be worth taking a shot on as he may not be in Phoenix's after plans for next season.

Jonathan Cheechoo - RW/LW
Contract: 1 year - 5M
Why you may want him: Cheechoo's ratings will still reflect his 37 goal season so that may in fact be the selling point in a guy who is overpriced but not devistatingly so. He's still going to have a goalscorer's rating despite his decline, and since it is a one year contract all you really need to worry about is his rating next year, which will be impressive. Also signing on Cheechoo will give an opportunity to sign him next year if he does regain his previous level of talent, Cheechoo is only 29 so it is possible.

DEFENCE

Phoenix can only trade 1 of Brookbank and McIver.. and 1 of Eriksson and Wilson

Sheldon Brookbank - RD
Contract: 1 year x $650K
Why you may want him: Good value for his contract. Very physical and a shutdown style defenceman. After moving Hale we would be looking for nothing less than a 4th rounder, or a comparbale prospect.

Nathan McIver - LD
Contract: 1 year x $495K
Why you may want him: McIver plays a solid physical and defensive game. Won't produce points but will take care of business on his side of the blue line very effectively. Also he is only 24 years old. Worth a shot with a mid round pick or comparable prospect.

Anders Eriksson - LD
Contract: 2 years x $500K
Why you may want him: Eriksson exploded offensively in the AHL before being called up to play two playoff games for the Flames. Due to his large contract, and Calgary's situation against the cap Eriksson was unable to be utilized untill the playoffs. Eriksson will likely find a team where he can play everday, also his two good seasons the last 2 years in the NHL should play a big part in his ratings.

Clay Wilson - LD
Contract: 1 year x $605K
Why you may want him: Wilson is a solid reserve defenceman who still has alot of offensive potential. Wilson could be had for a pick.

GOALTENDERS

Jose Theodore - G
Contract: 3 years - $4.7M
Why you may want him: With no major free agent goaltenders to speak of this year, Jose Theodore may be the best player on the open market this summer. With already a few teams stating they'll be interested after free agency has completed we are nearing the end of free agency and Theodore is still a Coyote. Although with the emergence of Simeon Varlamov, Theodore will still have great value throughout his contract. Theodore is one of only 15 goaltenders active today that has won; on average 30 games in both this year, and the previous year combined, and with the way goaltending is calculated his 2.44 goals against average the year before last, combined with 30+ wins over the last 2 years on average will keep his rating good, and worth a 4.7M goaltender over the next 3 years, as well if Varlamov struggles expect to see Theodore get the majority of the action again this year, trying to be a steady piece of a Washington Capitals team that is already loaded with talent which is sure to boost his rating even further. 4.7M is not a generous price but at the same time it's not a rediculous overpayment either, keeping in mind his NHL contract is 4.5M.

PROSPECTS

Christian Hanson - FW
Why you may want him: Hanson isn't officially being shopped around, but he is being listed as a potential top 6 forward, as there are people out there that feel he has that potential. He's got a huge frame and being compared to 1st rounders i guess Greg Nemisz would be a fairly close comparison of what kind of build and skillset he has. Phoenix will listen to offers on Hanson due to the fact he sounds fairly popular but will not just give him away.

Evan McGrath - C
Why you may want him: McGrath finally found the scoring touch he had for so many years in the OHL. He's defensively responsible and put up 47 points in the AHL. McGrath could be had for a draft pick or comparable prospect. HF gives McGrath a 6.5-C rating.

Riley Holzapfel - C
Why you may want him: Holzapfel is another guy Phoenix is interested in feeling out offers for just based on popularity. Holzapfel was an engery guy for Team Canada's WJC Championship team in 2008, and projects to be a 2nd line center at the NHL level. Holzapfel put up 32 points spending part of his season as a teenager during his first pro season in the AHL. HF gives Holzapfel a 7.5-C rating

Nicolas Blanchard - C
Why you may want him: Blanchard projects to be an energy line player in the NHL. Blanchard plays with an edge despite coming from the QMJHL. A draft pick or comparable prospect would land Blanchard. HF gives Blanchard a 5.0-B rating.

Jay Barriball - LW/C
Why you may want him: Barriball is the prototypical small player. He's got plenty of speed, a great skater, and puts up plenty of points. Barriball is playing in the NCAA at the moment but has only his senior year to go. Barriball could be had for a comparable prospect or pick. HF gives Barriball a 6.5-C rating.

Stefan Ruzicka - RW
Why you may want him: Yes his name is back on here. Ruzicka has alot of potential, but just couldn't get the ice time he wanted. Since we have a history of having european players return the second we remove them from our team, we figured Ruzicka is young enough and talented enough to hold on to or trade. A comparable prospect or pick could land Ruzicka. HF gives Ruzicka a 7.0-F rating.

Bobby Sanguinetti - RD
Why you may want him: Despite the acquisitions of Scott Hannan and Ryan Parent Sanguinetti remains on the trade block partially out of curiosity but for the most part would only move for a comparable prospect i had more value in, OR as part of a deal to land a young top 6 center. Sanguinetti isn't far off from top 4 minutes in New York. HF gives Sanguinetti a 7.5-C rating.

Sebastien Bisaillon - RD
Why you may want him: Bisaillon made his NHL debut at 20, but didn't return last year. Bisaillon has had some issues with injury but still has a rating that could make him useful as a reserve defenceman and is still young with NHL potential. Bisaillon is available for a pick or comparable prospect. HF gives Bisaillon a 5.0-B rating.

Mike Murphy - G
Why you may want him: Not many teams out there would like to pass up a 2x OHL goaltender of the year, as well as the 1st time CHL goaltender of the year. He's the first to win the award back to back in over 10 years. Murphy is very unorthodox which throws some people off, or drives them away. But Murphy has proven that it works for him. Murphy lead the Belleville Bulls to the 2008 Memorial Cup, and to the Eastern Conference finals this past year. Murphy is not a guy we are shopping around, but rather testing the waters, as the Coyotes already have Steve Mason as well as the rights to Dustin Tokarski, so if a team can help the Coyotes with one of their needs, then Murphy may be expendable, and become their goaltender of the future in a hurry. HF gives Murphy a 7.0-C rating.

Linden Rowat - G
Why you may want him: Rowat has proven to be a very good goaltender in the WHL. Rowat has one more year and although may have a ways to go but he's a legitimate NHL prospect who may develop into an NHL goaltender. A comparbale prospect or pick will land you Rowat. HF gives Rowat a 6.0-C rating.

Updated to reflect Brunette deal. With Novotny going to europe that opens up a spot on Phoenix's bottom 6 for a centerman. This may be a perfect opportunity for a team that needs a reserve/6th defenceman and has more than enough centers this year to go after Brookbank or McIver in exchange for that centerman. I do value Brookbank more than McIver, so it'll need to be a better centerman to gain him, send in your offers.
