Than Yandle, or Bogosian? I like Burns size and shot, but if I had to choose, I'd say:
Yandle is younger, has better speed and vision and less health concerns...
They're incredibly close, I think it just comes to personal preference myself. Yandle had more points, but Burns had 17 goals. Both teams are pretty awful offensively, they could probably score even more on a team that knows what a "goal" is.
I mean if you look at it, this is basically the comparable to the Sharks package for Burns from the Wings
Filppula (Setoguchi), Smith (Coyle), 1st rounder for Yandle, 2nd
Obviously we would not get a 2nd back. I know that's kind of beating a dead horse with Filppula, but that's the closest comparison that can be made.
You know why I don't think this will work? Well, there are a number of reasons, but one nobody's mentioned yet is: Phoenix knows Hudler a little too well from the playoffs. I can see where struggling EC teams that we only play once a year might be interested in picking a Wing, any Wing, but I'm thinking the Coyotes know better than that, considering how often we played them this year.
Anyone that realistically knows what it will take to get Yandle knows Hudler won't be involved.
