If we could get him for Klesla, I would be tickled pink.

Seto or Brouwer would both be a good return for Klesla.

Unless if RK is banged up and is a step slower.

I prefer Erat, but if the Coyotes get Brouwer I hope the Caps retain some of his salary and he turns into the player I was hoping Moss would be when the Coyotes signed him.

I don't think that the Caps would want Moss. They may want Korpikoski instead (or another LW).

Likely the real reason Klesla was a healthy scratch last Saturday - he wasn't actually healthy enough to go.

#Coyotes GM Don Maloney said D Rusty Klesla is still nursing a nagging injury. Should hear more from coach Dave Tippett soon

Sarah McLellan ‏@azc_mclellan 4m

Klesla had a personal issue to take care of today, Tippett said. That's why he was missing. He'll be back tomorrow.

So the team officially calls it a healthy scratch, the GM says he's got a nagging injury, and the head coach claims it's a personal injury? They all seem to agree he'll be back soon, though. Hmmm...

Maybe they had a trade lined up, so they scratched Klesla, now it fell through. Or maybe Tip was upset with him or his play, and he healthy scratched him. Maybe Klesla is pissed about one of the above now, so he wanted out of practice to regroup. Or maybe he has personal issues, or maybe it is nothing. This seems strange to me though, all the different explanations/signals coming from Tip and DM. I think it is more then Klesla just being banged up...

The way I understood it, the healthy-scratch/nagging injury-scratch and the personal issue were two separate events.

A trade could've fallen through because Schlemko went down with an injury the night Klesla was a healthy scratch.

My guess is all of this is just Rusty has something going on outside of hockey that needs his attention right now. DM and Tip just either got their lines mixed, or never discussed, what to tell the media hence the mixed messages. I don't buy DM's injury line since they've never been afraid of saying guys are out for a maintenance day before and it's not like people would suddenly clue into Rusty being injury prone by missing one more game. Don't think it was a possible trade either since he missed practice today.

Whatever it is, injury or not, hope it's not too serious and that Rusty can be back soon.

Would be nice if we had a functional media presence for this team, but there's only one reporter on the Coyotes beat, and her coverage to this point has been nothing but stringing together quotes from front office press releases. With a monopoly on coverage, you'd think McLellan could do a little digging without having to worry about losing access (not that that should ever be the concern of an actual journalist anyway).

Once ownership was settled I thought she might shift gears and become more of a beat writer rather than someone who writes puff-pieces. That's Dave Vest's job. She's a good writer and knows hockey, so maybe she's just one of those young journalists who struggles asking tough questions of subjects. That's not a criticism of Sarah. Some can do it, some can't.

I like McLellan just fine, but yeah, it's softball after softball. That's just this market. It's not unique to hockey. It's all of teams here. None of them have to worry about answering to the media. Ever.

Sarah does occasionally ask critical questions. I mean they're not hardballs, but not softballs either. She does often ask about under-performing players. Eh. I prefer this over something like the Boston or Philly media who causes star players to be traded for their extracurricular activities.

True. And to be fair to her, it's not as though this group has opened themselves up for a ton of criticism. They're doing a damn fine job. What does Sarah McLellan (or any of us, for that matter) really have to call them out on? Kyle Turris is sort of controversial but also sort of history. We're nervous about Rundblad, but he's getting the time he's earned. We were skeptical when we came into the season with that log-jam at D, but now we're all so grateful for it.

I like Sarah. What I like about her is she always answers people, and if you ask her to ask Maloney something, she does EVERYTIME. I've asked her to ask GMDM multiple questions and each time, the next interview I hear with her and Maloney my question was asked almost word for word. I think the lack of hardball questions come from the fact that everyone knows Maloney will not answer them the way we want, he's very broad with his responses.

Brayden Schenn "quietly available." http://www.tsn.ca/videohub/?collection=72&show=132836

Going to resurrect my max offer for Simmonds here: Rundblad + Lessio + 2nd.

For Schenn I'd offer a hell of a lot. I'd give up that offer easy. I'd even base one on Gormley.

I think Rundblad is the better fit due to their dearth of RH PMDs. But obviously Gormley has the higher value.

Gormley + Lessio + 2nd for Schenn would be a pretty bold move for Maloney.

This may sound stupid, but if Schenn is that good, why hasn't he broken out yet? And where would he fit in to our lineup?

Eh, he's a 22 year old .5+ ppg player for a gong show of an organization. Wouldn't write him off yet

Schenn can certainly play in the top 6. Assuming Moss doesn't return and Domi makes the roster next season:

Schenn - Ribeiro - Boedker
Domi - Hanzal - Vrbata
Korpikoski - Vermette - Doan
Klinkhammer - Chipchura - Brown

Schenn is a mini Doan with possibly, more offensive upside. Would love to grab him.
