But I agree it would take a lot to get anything done here.

Why is Yandle a non-starter for conversation? He's far from Nicklas Lidstrom here. Every player has a price and Maloney would be a fool to not even listen to offers.
I just don't think the Flyers would trade Giroux (which would be our asking price given that Yandle was a strong Norris candidate for much of last season). Weber is the best d man in the league (should have won the Norris last year IMO). Yandle is in that second group. He finished top 5 in the Norris vote for best D man and he's easily our best blueliner at this point.
