HAHAHAHA.

Yes, let's trade a #1 defender, Phoenix #1 goal scorer and a first rounder for a prospect, an streaky sniper with a horrible contract that hasn't passed 30 goals since 08-09(only time he did it as well) and a second?

So bad proposal in every single way.

Nevermind about the prospect, mixed Kronwall(in his "kronner" nick) with Brunner. And even Brunner is probably past the prospect stage but is still far form proven.

And Kronwall is a second pairing defender so he'd still be a downgrade from Yandle.

Kronwall logs 25+ mins/game, plays both on the PP and PK while Yandle plays 21+ mins/game and only plays the PP.

Yet Kronwall is a 2nd pairing defenseman and Yandle is a 1st pairing defenseman?

Right, because Vrbata has scored 30+ goals...oh, only once as well! And it's not like he's lighting it up either. He had a career year last year, but he's 31 too.

Franzen got 29 goals missing 5 games, 28 missing 6 games and 27 missing 11 games in previous years. He's streaky but he's good for 25-30 goals if he stays healthy most of the season.

Stop making Vrbata and Yandle look like they are elite compared to Franzen and Kronwall. Different style, but it's a lateral move.

Yandle is worth more then Kronwell and Vrbatta is worth more then Franzen considering age and contract. Kronwell has no upside and Yandle has way more upside. Detroit says yes in a heartbeat, Phoenix says no way

Vrbata and Yandle, for Franzen and Kronwall are, all things considered, are a lateral move. The problem is, not counting this year, Franzen has 22.5 million and 7 years remaining on a contract that leads him up until his 40 year old season. Where Vrbata has, again not including this year, 1 year and 3 million remaining on his contract which leaves more flexibility. Yandle is 6 years younger than Kronwall and Phoenix throws in the first? This is an easy no from a Phoenix perspective.

Yeah, he gets a lot of minutes on a really bad D corps while Yandle gets fewer because the Phoenix D corps is really ****ing good. Just because Kronwall get first pairing minutes doesn't mean he should be a first pairing guy. Kostka play first pairing minutes in Toronto but that doesn't mean he should be a first pairing guy.

Neither Kronwall or Yandle are true #1 guys. Kronwall is closer because of his pk ability and the fact he has shut down bigger names when it matters. If you want to look at who gets Phoenix eliminated each year look no other place than Yandle. He is the guy that gets abused in whatever round they are tossed each year.

They are both very good #2 guys that have some problems. To call either guy a #1 cheapens what that label should truly be about.

Phoenix wants a premium for Yandle they are intitled to do that because of his contract and offensive numbers. Talent evaluators around the league should be smarter than to pay their request and to this point have been. He has some serious limitations to the point I don't even want him on the US Olympic team.

Going to go with the second one. I understand the first part, when you have nice stats it doesn't matter how you get them and lets be honest it increases value to fans. My guess is scouts point out the fact Yandle can't hit his way out of a wet paper bag and is fairly easy to turnstile in his own end. But his value comes from what he does offensively and that is boarderline elite and as long as you are willing to pay the price they have set and understand his limitations you're fine.

Detroit has a bunch of puck movers. Why each thread seems to identify that as a problem is strange. They need d-man that can play defense and hopefully are right handed. It is pointed out often by Detroit fans but doesn't seem to sink in.

I personally have zero interest in Yandle and I hope Holland feels similar on the subject. Even while much younger, in no way does he have the value of Datsyuk.

Haha holy **** yeah you really underestimate him. I mean, that entire post was hilarious(yeah, *Yandle* is the reason Phoenix lost against the Kings in 2012(not that the entire team bar Doan just stopped scoring), the Red Wings in 2011(Bryzgalov having a breakdown pretty much every single game but the first) and the Wings again in 2010(Injury issues and Bryzgalov again).) but to think that Yandle isn't a shoe-in at the Olympics(because of his skill and experience) really shows that you're either underestimating him or really overestimating a bunch of other D-men.

I mean, *******.

Keep in mind I watched those two series very closely, really watched the LA one as well, but with no rooting interest. Yandle got abused by the Wings both years, you can blame it on Bryz who wasn't great but the pairing they were hurting was Yandle's pairing before getting to Bryz. Datsyuk ran wild on Yandle who had absolutely no answer and that was with Zetterberg out. The year before Zetterberg did his damage on Yandle. Seeing Yandle on the ice when they weren't on the powerplay was a very good thing for Wings fans in both years.

As for the US thing, I have an actual rooting interest as an American. I want them to send the best team possible and I think leaving him at home probably helps that. They have plenty of puck movers that can fill his role and provide better defensive zone coverage. It is the same reason he was left off the roster on the last go round. He has suited up for Team USA only once for the 2009-10 WC. He is in the running and I guess he could be the PP specialist but he doesn't have Olympic experience so he is unlikely to beat out any of the returning guys. And they have some decent options over him. He is by no means a shoe-in, he needs his defensive game to get better to earn that title, something that seems fairly unlikely. For me OEL is already the #1 d-man in Phoenix and with good reason, he is a much better all around player.

In 2010 he was a -1 against Detroit in a series where they got seriously blown out by the Wings in game 7(the Bryzgalov effect). In 2011 he was -5 and wasn't that good, no, but name one guy on the Coyotes who actually were good in that series? They got swept and they got swept pretty decisively with a really bad goaltender behind him. And even though they got swept he managed five points which isn't that shabby to be quite honest.

In 2012 he had ten points in sixteen games and were one of the best D-men in the entire playoffs the first two rounds. He was also +5 and was responsible preventing a lot of breakaways with his pokechecks.

Ah yes, in 2010 when he had a total of 0 full NHL seasons in his belt. That's a fair comparision. Say, why don't Sweden bring back Sundin for Sochi because ******* he was good back in 2006. I mean, eight years is nothing, right?

Quote:

Before that he wasn't ready enough and after that he were either in or just out of the playoffs. Should Sweden ignore the Sedins in Sochi(not saying they're comparable but the situation is) because they don't dress for the WC?

If the USMNT pass on Yandle for Erik Johnson, Jack Johnson, Tim Gleason, Brooks Orpik, a retired Brian Rafalski, Ryan Whitney or Ryan Suter(okay, Suter I wouldn't object to since they should be the first pairing guys) then they are going to have a *fun* time in the olympics.

Seriously, other than Suter I'd take Yandle over ANY of those guys any day of the week.

OEL is a better PKer and goes for hits instead of stickchecking, yeah, but his PP is worse and he have a lot less experience. Not ragging on OEL, I think he'll be one of the best D-men in the league within ten years, but right now he isn't better than Yandle. They just have different skill-sets.

I'd go with the latter, personally, largely because it potentially reflects an "interesting" assumption on the part of folks as to the role Lidstrom was playing in Detroit.

Although watching folks blithely dismiss OEL is always amusing too.

I just figure Yandle will take Rafalski's place. That said, there's kind of an excess of hyperbole here.

Yandle commands a king's ransom in trade, due to his age and contract. Value for 'value' trades are pointless when discussing Yandle because he is more valuable to the Coyotes than what the market might otherwise bare. Maloney has stated that it will take serious assets to pry him lose. I'm not really interested in Kronwall, Franzen or Datsyuk. Those players do nothing for the Coyotes in the long term. We're talking about a team that can't possibly go out and sign those guys, so any homegrown asset has to be managed carefully. Blow it, even once, and you set back your franchise years. The only reason the Coyotes have even entertained the idea is because there's some Swedish kid running around on the ice 25 minutes a night for them.

Name them.

OEL is a better PKer and goes for hits instead of stickchecking, yeah, but his PP is worse and he have a lot less experience. Not ragging on OEL, I think he'll be one of the best D-men in the league within ten years, but right now he isn't better than Yandle. They just have different skill-sets.
OEL has supplanted him that is the reason they are considering this move in the first place and make no mistake the Coyotes will listen, they expect a lot, but they have made him available because of who and what OEL is currently and his even better upside in the future. They can let some of the younger guys take PP minutes where it is easier to score and there shouldn't be a drop off. Lets not forget with PP wizard Yandle Phoenix still had one of the worst PP units in the league.

On the Olympic front that is pretty easy as far as naming the options. Yandle should get invited to camp but his fit isn't as easy as most think. First of all Yandle is left handed and plays almost exclusively on the left side.

Two guys are similar there that want to play on the left side of the ice and are much better overall.

Suter and McDonagh, so there you have your first two d-man on the left.

Both Erik and Jack Johnson were preferred options over Yandle the last round and have a big history with USA hockey. Forget the fact I do think they are better all around players than Yandle for a second, do you really think USA Hockey doesn't take guys they have long had crushes on and have an inside trace with Olympic experience? Both guys have been playing better all around games lately and both provide things to the lineup including massive size but also skating on the international ice surface to go with it.

Now it would be nice to bring a PK guy and a really good one.

Orpik, Gleason, Carlson, Scuderi, Bogosian.

PP specialist options:

Byfuglien, Fowler, Shattenkirk, Yandle, Wisniewski, Goligoski and maybe Carle/Liles

They could also invite Seth Jones and Jacob Trouba to summer camp. Both guys have big time international credentials and play up to competition, I think Jones will still be busy with the WHL playoffs but wouldn't surprise me one bit to see either player on the WC team and in camp this summer. They have always played their way on to teams from young ages and have very mature games they also compete with the right handed part of the lineup.

Now like I said a lot of this is about team construction. But Yandle is by no means a shoe in, in fact even if you wanted to bring a mediocre defensive guy that is an awesome PP force than Byfuglien gets the call there.

It is far from a certain decision and one he will have to earn in camp. If Jack Johnson remains the choice over him which he very well could than I don't see the spot. He is competing with the left handed guys and that is a harder side more than likely. Plus his specialty of the PP he trails a guy like Byfuglien who shoots right. The Rafalski role in my opinion should go to Shattenkirk.

Kronwall and Franzen are signed for the rest of their careers. I don't really see them moving anyone of those guys but Franzen. But there is cost certainty on those players and full control for the Coyotes.

Datsyuk has the whole Russia issue, but he wouldn't be available for just Yandle if he even was ever made available. Even for a season and half I would guess Datsyuk's sticker price would be shocking to a lot of people.
