GMDM looking for "No. 2 scoring center"

This via Craig Morgan's twitter:
Quote:
@cmorgancbsfoxaz: #Coyotes GM Don Maloney said he had hoped to have a trade done for a forward today but the trade partner wasn't ready to say yes.

@cmorgancbsfoxaz: Maloney said top priority is to find a C. No. 2, scoring.
Craig Morgan is at the Coyotes media day... let the rumors and speculation begin.

Also before people start the Yandle to Boston rumors, take notice that Yandle has been one of the key players during media day. He has been taking a lot of pictures in front of the green screen, etc. It almost seems the Coyotes are really trying to showcase him and market him. Dont know if he is a realistic option to be traded away. No one besides Doan is "untouchable" but i dont see him being moved right now.

This was my thought. Maybe the Avs werent ready to say yes yet because they are still trying to sign him to a deal. If they arent able to maybe they move him?

Dont know what it would take to get a player that doesnt want to sign with the Avs if thats the case?

Would love to have him tho.

I will be pissed if Yandle is traded solely for O'Reilly. That does nothing for us short term or long term. It has to be an absolute win. Unless there is something going on behind the scenes with Yandle that we don't know about.

Hopefully this is a rumor that is not true since we need a #1 Center. Vermette is the #2 Center with Hanzal at #3 and Gordon at #4.

I believe Thomas Plekanec will become available by seasons end, would you guys consider him?

If we've learned anything, it's that Maloney will consider everything for the right price.

Would it be possible to get ROR without moving Yandle? Maybe Gormley plus?

What about Stone and Chris Brown? Colorado likes Michigan products. Throw Summers in too. Anything but Gormley. If your scouts say he's going to be Shea Weber good, you don't trade him for a guy who had 1 good season and is now being difficult with his contract.

Not when you can have Lombardi for a 3rd and have near the same impact.

I wished it was a number one also but maybe it would gut the team too much to get it done.

Let's be honest here. What does a #2 center do on this team? You roll with Korpi/Sullivan and likely Moss, contributing some offense if possible. Hanzal and Vermette are really 1-2.

If for no other reason, Maloney would say "#2 center" out of respect for Hanzal. If we do get a guy that is a serious scoring threat, I hope we put together a line that can actually pressure the other team on a consistent basis.

Well at least this makes the 1 week training camp interesting.

I agree, I think the 2nd tweet wasn't accurate. I believe Maloney is looking for a scoring forward, RWer or Center. Hopefully it's Iginla...

I would love plekanic on our team but I'm not sure what to give back.

I'd put up Gormley and maybe a pick?

What do you mean? Maloney said it himself that that was the top priority. Confused on why you would think it wasnt accurate?

I know our whole team is very conservative and it has worked out well so far but sometimes it would be nice to make a move to get someone who can put up 1ppg or more although I would cringe at the cost.

Sarah McLellan‏@azc_mclellan

Haven't been able to tweet much this afternoon with #Coyotes media day but this is what I've been told re: trades.


Sarah McLellan‏@azc_mclellan

Was a deal in works the last few days and Maloney hoped to accomplish it by start of camp but it's not available anymore.

Sarah McLellan‏@azc_mclellan

Deal could still happen but it very well may not. Very fluid time right now with teams assessing needs.


Sarah McLellan‏@azc_mclellan

Obviously, and this isn't new, #Coyotes have defensive depth. That's their main bargaining chip.

Sarah McLellan‏@azc_mclellan

It's also no secret this team has a need for offensive help, particularly up the middle.

Sarah McLellan‏@azc_mclellan

But if a core piece is going to be sacrificed for that, like a Yandle, it would merit a sizable return.

The Habs would jump on it. I dont think you would have to give up that much.

I would hope that Hanzal isn't really considering himself a #1 center under most circumstances.
