Raanta is a UFA next summer. That's a lot to pay for potentially one season.

That's terrible for Arizona. The 35th should be enough.

Not at all interested in getting into a bidding war for Raanta. It will be a buyer's market for goalies this summer.

If Raanta was even worth half that he would have already been traded to Arizona.

The picks alone are a fair price

23rd overall for Raanta and Plekanec?

I think there is a deal to be made between Arizona and Vegas regarding a goalie.

This isn't the deal to be done as that is way, way, WAY too much for Raanta. I'd say the 2nd would be just fine.

Chayka has said, that he would like to keep goalies cheap, and Raanta is a very good bang for your buck!
I'm a Coyote fan and I don't think this is an awful offer, if AZ gets 50-55 games of what Raanta provided last year, it's not bad at all.

However, how many teams are looking for a goalie? One? 2 maybe, 3 at the most. Buyer's market and I believe Chayka won't pay above what he received in the Smith trade, which is essentially a 2nd rounder.

Haha. No. Lower your value expectation by 75%

I'd still pass on the guy and rather sign Johnson. I'd only trade for a real nr1 or somebody with that potential.

Yotes would be better off with a younger, RFA goalie like Grubauer or Pickard.
