Likely a rival GM that realized at the last minute that he was about to become Maloney's latest victim.

I wonder if he has a rep now. "Oh ****, Maloney is proposing this..."

What does Columbus have that we like?

This is what we all know but other teams' fans don't get:

Not sure why Yandle speculation is so high. He's part of core. Would take big deal to pull him out of that...just like w/ other core players

I'm convinced she reads these boards for ideas. First the Yandle article after we boot around ideas and rumors, then the Rundblad one after we all praise his progress.

It's possible but you don't have to follow the Yotes very closely to know that Yandle is a big part of the organization. He's a defenceman for a coach that favors that side of the ice, signed to a long-term, fair deal, a good citizen and a leader in the locker room who looks like the future captain. He also happens to be pretty good on a team that doesn't have a legit star player. I have a hard time seeing him moved unless it's in a blockbuster. I've been wrong before and I wouldn't be surprised if I'm wrong here but that's the way I see it.

I would consider a Yandle trade a surefire sign that the ownership deal has soured. No other reason to move him.

For one thing Maloney would never label #2 Center. Even though we may think a player is #2 center, Maloney wouldn't label anyone like that. What I'm also trying to say is that a playmaking RW (who can score) would be just as good as a center with those skills and maybe a better fit. I didn't question the 1st tweet, I just think GMDM said he is looking for a forward to bring in to help with scoring and thwe tweet was part speculating and part trying to get as much across without typing too much.
IMO, GMDM is looking to upgrade Johnson's position.
I probably should have said misleading because it implied that is all he was looking at, while we all know it's the individual and where he will fit and get ice time, and not the position. Also if if the Coyotes acquire someone, a contract will likely have to go the other way.

The way that the tweets come off make it sound like it was a one-for-one swap, although that is subject to however it is interpreted.

Deal with Toronto makes sense for all sides - could imagine either Rundblad, Stone, or Klesla going there for any one of Lombardi, MacArthur, possibly Lupul?

Klesla for Stafford (BUF) or Nielsen (NYI) or Horton(BOS)?

That's about the best that I can think of, given the rosters. I know the tweets said #2 C, but I think that #2 forward in general is our minimum ask and return in any deal involving any mix of players and/or picks...

This is one reason I have faith in Maloney.

He knows we need a center and he has been working patiently to get the right deal. He hasn't just blown picks or prospects for a quick fix. I really hope if ownership settles they keep him.

I wonder if there is any conceivable way in which we could acquire Ryan O'Reilly without sacrificing Yandle or OEL. Something based around Gormley plus a little or Rundblad plus a good amount, maybe? I don't know if we could get Colorado to go for it, but ROR would be a nice add.

He's only twelve months and eleven days older than Gormley and is actually four months younger than Rundblad.

Phoenix Coyotes GM Don Maloney shopping around for deal

Quote:
“I would have liked to have it done for the opening of camp, but it’s not there,” Maloney said. “It may never be there.”

It’s still entirely possible this particular deal resurrects itself, and that’s why Maloney won’t divulge the details on his shopping list, but it’s clear the Coyotes have an excess of defensemen and a need for scoring.

“We would like to improve up front,” Maloney said. “That’s no secret. To win a championship, you have to be strong through the middle of the ice, and if there was something that falls our way, sure.”

Maloney makes it sound like a big deal. Usually a deal that specific between two teams involves big names. If he just wanted to fish out an average forward, he could have done that twenty different ways by now.

If I remeber correctly from last season, the rumor going around was Yandle for Staal in Pittburgh but we ended up getting Z instead. It should be safe to say that whenever Yandle gets mention in a rumor of a trade that Yandle is just a screen for whatever else GMDM decides who to go after, no?

Yandle's not going anywhere unless we get blown out of the water. Simple as that. Rest easy.

Maloney seeking center for Coyotes

Quote:
One name that’s being thrown around is Toronto’s Matthew Lombardi. The 30-year-old has one year left on his contract with the Maple Leafs, with a cap hit of $3.5 million.

I would imagine it was with the Leafs. Which one? IMO, Bozak would be a younger, cheaper, and better fit than either Connolly or Lombardi. All 3 will be UFAs if they don't re-sign.
RO'R? I wish! Is term the only reason why he hasn't re-signed?

Briere? (Not for Yandle of course)

Maybe the recent news of Briere's injury halted trade talk.


As for Lombardi, it looks like the Leafs won't play him. Carlye's been working him on a 'line 6' forward line with a bunch of AHLers.

Leafs fan here. I don't think any Toronto fan expects much for Lombardi. Maybe a 3rd or 4th round pick.

Only way you are getting that much for him is if you are retaining 50% of his salary.
