We now know the official asking price on Jakob Chychrun
. He is clearly a hot commodity, as he can play as much as 25 minutes per night, at an outstanding $4.6-million cap hit. Similar defenders are being paid as much as $9.5-million per season.
Even better, Chychrun is still under contract for three years, and would be an excellent addition for any team looking for a deep run.
Unfortunately, with a low cap-hit, trade value sky-rockets. We saw this with Brandon Hagel
at last years' trade deadline, where he fetched two 1sts, due to his $1.5-million salary.
On TSN's Insider Trading
the trade ask was confirmed. Two First round picks, as well as either a high-end prospect, or a young roster player.
LeBrun on Insider Trading says the reason the #Yotes are asking for two 1st RDers ++ for Jakob Chychrun
is cause Anaheim got a 1st RDer, two 2nd RDers ++ for Lindholm, an older player, Hagel fetched two 1st RDers cause of his low cap hit. Chychrun is young with a bargain cap hit.
If Hampus Lindholm
, who was five years older than Chychrun and on an expiring deal costs such a package, maybe GM Bill Armstrong is reasonable.
No matter what, the Coyotes don't seem to be in any rush to trade Chychrun, and they will wait until they get what they want.
IF YOU WERE AN NHL GM, WOULD YOU PAY THIS MUCH FOR JAKOB CHYCHRUN?
