I don't see why people come in here and claim he isn't "elite" or a "number one." If you don't think so, then why do you want him so bad? All I'm reading is about how he's not good defensively and so on...if he wasn't good defensively he wouldnt be our number one and he wouldnt be so highly conveyed. If you believe that we will just let go of our number one defenseman and possible future captain for your teams 2nd and 3rd line players your crazy. Mind you, he is OUR number one, what makes you think that we wouldn't want a number one player in return?

I'd lean towards Yandle and Hanzal in that 'trade'.

But, that's just me, i could see a case for both sides.

AGree, but needs are met for both teams I think.

Does Phx really have a 'need'? They were really close to being the best team in the NHL, if the Kings werent so hot, the Coyotes might have won the cup this year. They're really close, you think they have a pressing need?

Why are credible people reporting he is available? Rumours seemed to start even before the Michalek trade, so it's not like it's random speculation.

I'm ok if the Yotes want to keep him unless they get an amazing deal, I just don't think this many people would be talking about it if he was 100% untouchable.

Phoenix won their division and made it into the 3rd round... why the hell would they trade any of their key pieces?

I think that they could use more scoring, and if they wanted, they could trade a dman (strength).
Oilers need a number 2 big center, and a top pairing dman, and can afford to move one of the big 4.

There seems to be uncertainty as to what will happen with Whitney and Doan.

I'm sure they could use some offense, but seemingly not at the price of Yandle.

Perhaps they will test the UFA market.

You think Doan won't be back?

I'd like him to be back, i'm counting the days till the first meeting between Phx and LA, i want to see how that plays out.

Well, I'm sure he wants to be back and they would love for him to be back as well.

Rumours were out that he wanted a 3-4 year deal, and with the uncertainty of the team in Phoenix, it's tough to predict how things will play out.

It would be a shame if he retired anywhere else.

Exactly. Further glory is on the horizon, just like it was for the Conference finalist Lightning in 2011, the Habs in 2010, the Canes in 2009, the Stars in 2008, the...

It's the media, its what they do best. All it takes is one call to Maloney inquiring about Yandle, the press hears about it and turns it into Phoenix is shopping Yandle. Both Maloney and Treliving sounded legitimately surprised that they were apparently shopping Yandle. Maloney has said in the past that he listens to all offers that come his way unless it pertains to Doan, so if multiple teams are asking about Yandle and the media hears about it, no doubt they would assume he's being shopped rather than it simply being Maloney doing what his job is in listening to what is out there. Makes for better headlines.

So, PHX is still in limbo as to whether or not they're going to stay there for the next decade or two? Im not following their trials and tribulations closely, they could still move in the next couple years?

What about sumthing centered around Krejci and Brandon Gormley instead?
That way we can have a future pairing of Team Canada's Hamilton-Gormely top pair

I don't see why Yandle would be traded at the moment. It's a move you make in two years after Rundblad, Gormley, Murphy, and Goncharov are pushing for Top 4 spots. You don't take a player like Yandle off of a WCF team that's in long-term financial turmoil. A team that hopes it can build some momentum off of its performance and avert relocation.

If you do trade him, you don't do it for a package of lesser players. Maybe you think about doing it for a guy like Ryan or Nash or something.

I'd love him on the Oilers, but we don't have the assets to give up to get him, since Eberle, Hall, RNH, and (probably) Yakupov won't be traded.

Don't know about the other Yotes fans around here, but I'd be tempted by an offer like that.

There's a difference between listening to offers and actively trying to trade a player. Phoenix has the luxury of being able to consider moving a valuable puck moving #1 D who was a Norris candidate last season. They are under zero pressure from the fan base or ownership (and the NHL have been the best owners in franchise history) to make a move. Maloney is looking at the long-term picture. He won't move Yandle unless a key piece to the organizations future is addressed.

As for the Oilers. They absolutely need to make a move to improve their blue line. I don't imagine for a second that any of the Big 4 are available but Tambellini will lose his job unless significant improvement us made on the Oiler blue line. A player with the puck skills like Yandle who can quickly transition the puck to the forwards would be a extremely attractive option for the Oilers. Even moreso given his contract status. Again, I'm not of the opinion that the Oilers would move any of the #1's or Eberle but you can understand why Phoenix fans would expect their management to test that theory.

Actually, I like it too! $5.25Mil, but then again the Coyotes paid $4.5Mil for Langkow's services for this past season...

...and I would guess that Maloney was trying to get Shero to trade Sutter, the 8th pick, and Michalek for Yandle, which was all started last week when the Coyotes called for the availability of J Staal. GMDM tried to get the Flyers involved, but my guess is that they would not part with JVR and Schenn...

Krejci would definitely be a great pick-up for the Yotes - talented playmaking center in his prime with two-way skill who played in a similar system on the Bruins. Krejci-Vermette-Hanzal-Gordon would be a pretty formidable center corps.

I saw his name being floated around by quite a few Bruins fans who wanted to pick up Yandle during the peak of the trade rumors on Friday. Probably would not trade those two straight up - I'd imagine since both are held in high-esteem by their respective fanbases and organizations, either side would want an overpayment. But if the Bruins were interested in Gormley - well, I'd definitely get the ball rolling.
