Arizona Coyotes Rumors: Jakob Chychrun Trade Offers Rejected

The Arizona Coyotes continue to discuss defenseman Jakob Chychrun on the trade market and it sounds like a deal could be announced as early as Wednesday. Chychrun was once again held out of the Coyotes lineup on Tuesday night for trade-related reasons and talks have advanced this morning.

As Darren Dreger mentions, the asking price remains steep and teams aren't yet willing to budge. The Coyotes want two first-round picks, one prospect and are willing to take back a bad contract to facilitate the move financially.

The Ottawa Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins, Buffalo Sabres are all heavily interested, meanwhile the Toronto Maple Leafs remain a wild card team in the sweepstakes.

Look for the Coyotes to finally give Chychrun what he wants ahead of the deadline and expect the trade to be one of the biggest we've seen this season.
