The Arizona Coyotes are struggling, and the Ottawa Sun reports the team is already dangling a number of its players in the trade market.
Sitting last in the Pacific Division and second-last in the entire NHL with 23 points (9-13-5 record, to date), the Sun suggests it would be in the Coyotes' best interest to make a few early moves.
According to the paper, Martin Hanzal, Radim Vrbata, Ryan White and Michael Stone are all up for grabs -- they all can become unrestricted free agent next July.
Hanzal's name has been on the trade block since last season. If the Coyotes are unable to sign him to a contract extension, and so far they have been unsuccessful, he will be dealt by the March 1 trade deadline.
Young forward Anthony Duclair's name has also been tossed around the market after being offered in a deal for Calgary Flames defenseman Dougie Hamilton in the summer, an offer that was rejected, but it does not seem like a move involving Duclair is imminent.
