This season is clearly a tank year for the Coyotes, as evidenced by their moves to hoard draft capital in exchange for being every teams bad contract dumping ground during the off-season.
It would seem the Coyotes are now interested in seeing what a return for defenseman Jakob Chychrun would look like to help continue in their complete organizational rebuild.
At least, that is what sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman seems to believe, here is what he had to say in his latest 32 thoughts article:
Arizona GM Bill Armstrong refused to comment when asked, but it now sounds like the Coyotes are gauging the market on Jakob Chychrun. I’ve heard the ask is massive, but that doesn’t mean opponents are running away. He’s signed for three more years at a very reasonable $4.6 million AAV and is a terrific player. This is one to watch.
The 23-year-old is signed to an amazing contract for 3 more years after this season that carries and AAV of $4,600,000 and is sure to draw interest from every team around the league.
However, the price for the caliber of player Chychrun is while signed to the value contract that he is, will be high.
