The Arizona Coyotes are getting absolutely slammed in some Jakob Chychrun trade grades for their deal with the Ottawa Senators.

Who won the big NHL trade involving Jakob Chychrun on Thursday?

There’s a clear winner in the deal that sent Chychrun from the Arizona Coyotes to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for three draft picks, at least according to early returns.

Many NHL writers praised the deal for Ottawa in their trade grades, while also slamming Arizona.

Here’s what they wrote about the trade:

For the Win: Coyotes get a D, Senators receive an A for deal

Mary Clarke wrote: “After a year and a half of being on the market, this is the return the Coyotes get for Chychrun? The Lightning gave up more to get Tanner Jeannot, if you can believe it! It’s possible the Coyotes asked for too much for Chychrun and as a result tanked his value but wow, what a steal for the Senators. I’m not convinced they’re in play for a wild card spot in the East this season, but Chychrun definitely solidifies Ottawa’s top four for the next few years.”
