Firstly, Yandle is not gonna be traded. Yandle has 3 yrs at 5.2 mil, not sure who threw that non sense out there!
It's not nonsense. Yandle has been in the rumours for 2 plus years now with Pittsburgh and Philly being mentioned often, mainly because the Yotes have so many good young d men in the system. OEL, Rundblad, Stone, Gormley just to name a few. Yes Yandle is great, but it makes sense for the Yotes to move him because of the depth on D. OEL is going nowhere as he is the better all round d man (Being compared to Lidstrom I heard) and they would not get the return they would want for the other d men in the system. Plus they could get 2 forwards making $5.2 back in return.
Were talking about a 1 year league tho.
And yes, my mistake, looking at his PIM's instead of points but still, great numbers.
