Trade Deadline 2010: Busy Day for Phoenix? Really?
Altogether the day saw 30 trades, involved 53 players and 25 draft choices. The Coyotes were involved in seven transactions.
Phoenix started off by acquiring defenseman Derek Morris from Boston in exchange for a 2011 4th round pick.
From Toronto they acquired forward Lee Stempniak for defenseman Matt Jones and a fourth and seventh rounder. They added forward Alexandre Picard from Columbus for forward Chad Kolarik, goaltender Miika Wiikman and a 2011 seventh rounder from the Rangers for defenseman Anders Eriksson and forward Petteri Nokelainen from Anaheim for unspecified sixth round pick.
Phoenix added experience for the immediate playoff run and possibly the most talented young player exchanged today in Wolski. Bravo Don Maloney!
