Blockbuster Trade That Would Save the Arizona Coyotes



There have been recent developments surrounding the Arizona Coyotes, as the city of Tempe recently rejected Gary Bettman's ambitious arena project.

While the team faces the possibility of relocation, they will still continue to play in Arizona for the upcoming season. However, an intriguing trade proposal has emerged, potentially revitalizing the franchise.

Would You Make That Trade?




In this scenario that went viral on social media, the Arizona Coyotes would acquire Auston Matthews, while the Toronto Maple Leafs would receive Clayton Keller, Nick Schmaltz, and two picks in the 2024 draft.

Trading for Matthews would necessitate parting ways with two of the Coyotes' top-performing players, along with valuable draft picks. This begs the question: Is it worth using these assets when Matthews could potentially become a free agent in 2024?

Matthews has expressed his desire to remain in Toronto, but it could change before the end of his contract.

It probably won't happen, but it's still fun to consider.
