Arizona Coyotes

Ice Bites: Grading Phoenix Coyotes trade for Martin Erat

The National Hockey League trade window has come to a close and, after all the dust settled, the Phoenix Coyotes were up a winger, a pick and a prospect and down three prospects and a veteran defenseman.

After it was all said and done, every hockey pundit took to the Internet to grade the trades, so why would I do anything different? Except I give the trade for former Washington Capitals winger Martin Erat and the trade window two different scores.

The trade for Erat was good, not great. Most importantly, it improved a bad situation. I can change my grade at any time (hooray for instant editing!), but until he starts putting up some points, I have my reservations.

Also, was I the only one shocked the Coyotes didn't make another move? It turns out they had a reason -- a good one -- for not spending.
