Coyotes Acquire Pettersson From Nashville for Dauphin, Helewka
Ladies and Gentlemen...we have a trade!!!
Does he go to Tucson or is he already one of our best centers?
Secondary trade with Milwaukee and Tucson:
We are at 49 contracts now, will there be more moves?
Not sure I understand this one, but okay.
Journeyman status official.
Pettersson’s put up some respectable numbers in the AHL (46 in 76 last year and 33 in 46 this year). Wouldn’t be shocked if he gets a chance with the squad by the end of the year.
Dauphin wasn't keeping up the pace from last year, plus he had to go through waivers now.
Best part about this is getting under 50 contracts. I'd still like to shed 1 or 2 more for added flexibility ahead of the deadline.
The more I learn about Pettersson, the more I like this trade. TD flexibility, and Pettersson has got enough production that he could come up to the big club and stick (his brother certainly has).
All about that contract spot.
This also was something that's probably been in the works for a while.
Freed up a contract, and Pettersson doesn't have terrible numbers. Could be a better option than Weal should he get a look up here.
Dauphin is like our biggest trade chip ever. When will we get him back from Nashville??
Dat contract spot though.
I’d love to purge one extra contract with panik too
Jérémy Grégoire is also part of the deal it appears, but he's on an AHL contract so it doesn't count as a NHL transaction. AHL-only contracts of course do not count toward the NHL contract limit.
I questioned sending a couple of decent guys from the Runners away like that...I am not sure they got an upgrade, but I know it was really about 50->49.
Clearly this is a move to reunite the Pettersson brothers.
There is something poetic about Arizona acquiring the lesser of two brothers so frequently (Ekman-Larsson and Schmaltz being exceptions).
We've had both Ekman-Larsson's, both Hossa's, and both Roenick's, too.
Another Swede, another Center and importantly one less contract. Chayka keeping with his 1.03 trades per month ratio (Weal trade was Jan 11th).
and both Gretzky's!!
WE GOT PETTERSSON!
Wonder if he's better than Freddie Hamilton.
Maybe, but he’s no Marcel Hossa. Certainly can’t be worse than Jared Staal.
It’s like we go for bloodlines and get stuck with the runts of the litters.
Once the feds shut down Dauphinaris and demanded all the Dauphins be shipped out of AZ, this move was only a matter of time.
