Take a look at GMDM's dealings - He hasnt shown an bad trade yet - and he is a frugal shopper with a keen eye for value. If you want to offer sheet him fine, we will either match, or take 4 1st rounders depending on the offer. He, at this point is problably value wise at Doughty - And to be honest if the bonds sell and MH gets a 230 million payment for this team and spends like 170 million there will be enough money to do whatever. So keep in mind that IF Yandle were to become availible you would be competing with 10 other teams and we would be looking to maximize our value I dont see Boston even having the best assets to get him.

Just not really likely to happen, The only way I see any person on the yotes moved is if they can be replaced and the team made better this season. We are in win now mode, because we need the butts in the seats now.

If he gets an offer sheet, it will be from a contending team. At most it will be 4 firsts in the bottom half of the draft. There are teams out there that would offer more than that right now, in terms of picks and prospects.

I also think value is a terrible word to use seeing Yandle will get a hefty deal. He is a value now but going foward he will have a market level contract.
