NHL Rumors: Coyotes To Shop Defenseman

Since last summer, the Arizona Coyotes have been tanking like crazy. This is a trend that will likely continue this offseason, and one player who could be shopped because of this is Shayne Gostisbehere.

One year ago, Gostisbehere had zero trade value, and the Flyers had to give up draft picks for the Coyotes to take on his contract. Yet, that has changed dramatically, as he just put together an excellent season in Arizona. In 82 games, he scored 14 goals and recorded 51 points.

The Coyotes would be wise to take advantage of Gostisbehere's trade value skyrocketing. Furthermore, the 29-year-old is about to enter the final year of his deal. Teams in need of some offense from the point will be calling the Coyotes this summer about him.
