The Ducks get to reunite Marleau with Devin Setoguchi and Joe Thornton. Our goal was to keep Fowler, but the only way to get Marleau was to give him up. However now that we have Yandle we can put him in Fowler's spot on the blue line and make this move.
Ducks top 6 now:
Bobby Ryan ($5.100mm)/ Ryan Getzlaf ($5,325,000 m) / Corey Perry ($5.325m)
Devin Setoguchi (3 m)/Joe Thornton (7 m ) / Patrick Marleau (5.4)
Coyotes eat his salary both this year and next year.

We weren't keen on moving Yandle unless the return was right. We think we did well. Andrew steps onto our top-6 and in Holland and Friberg we see two guys who will make an impact as top-6 forwards, while Wagner has that upside but has some work to do on some aspects of the game.
That's the trade you have confirmed in the thread.
