The Arizona Coyotes are a bit of a mess as usual and we can expect some major changes once again.
With John Chayka out as general manager, the team will start dismantling what he's built as they try and shed salary and cut costs.
NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reports that the Coyotes are in full rebuild mode and will look to move one of their best players.
Friedman reports the team would like to move Oliver Ekman-Larsson and the 29 year old is ready to waive his no movement clause.
Ekman-Larsson of course won't waive it for just anybody and would like to stay with his preferred landing spots. Friedman adds that teams believe he would be revitalized by a fresh start and contribute immediately.
The low budget team only has $1million in cap space for next season so it would probably be a clear salary cap shed as well.
He comes with a hefty price tag and cap hit of $8.25million a year through the 2025-26 season but he's consistently put up solid offensive numbers on the Coyotes.
