Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
... it is an annual rite of summer to have Keith Yandle trade rumors swirling, and this is an important offseason for the Phoenix Coyotes, who were some folks' pick (OK, mine and mine alone) to win the Stanley Cup last year....
Phoenix is deep along the blue line and Yandle would command a handsome return, but the guess here is that if Yandle is moved it will be for immediate assistance rather than top draft picks. The Coyotes need help down the middle.
You wonder if the Edmonton Oilers have any decent forwards they would be willing to give up for a smooth, puck-moving defenseman? Or are the Oilers determined to stay in the hunt for yet another first overall draft pick next summer?
The Ottawa Senators need help up front, so Yandle is not necessarily a fit there, but longtime Senators center Jason Spezza would be a nice fit for the Yotes.
more topics such as how about Adam Oates as the coach of the Penguins and the Andrei Markov signing...
