For my money, I feel that a number of teams will be in the position to be sellers. A team could help the Coyotes by dealing them a forward who can amass points, in the process dumping salary and contracts that could hamper its own ability to make moves in the offseason.
But if you are Coyotes general manager Don Maloney, you are probably looking for guys who not only can score points, but who also fit into head coach Dave Tippett's style of play. While Tippett would love an Alex Ovechkin—and wouldn't necessarily care what his plus/minus rating is if he scores goals like Ovechkin can do—the Ovechkins of the world are not out there to be had during this shortened season.
Here is a list of five guys the Coyotes could explore bringing in to provide depth and some additional scoring. Cost, potential availability and style of play were the three determining factors in placing these men on the list.
Remember that this list is for this season and does not guarantee that these players will be here after this season. They are listed in order of who would be the biggest and most valuable addition, in the author's opinion.
