Yandle might outscore Staal every year for the rest of their career.

Staal has shown no commitment to our market that seems terribly difficult for most players to commit to. Yandle had no such difficulty.

It's pretty apparent moments after games end that Yandle is a leader on this team. You can also tell by the letter he's had stitched on his chest for years.

One year ago, we were sure he'd be a Norris contender every summer. He had one minor set back of a season and all of a sudden he's expendable. I doubt Maloney has such a short memory. Keith Yandle is capable of so much and has actually shown it in the NHL. He's also integral to team chemistry on a team in which chemistry is integral.

If we go one more full season without seeing a glimpse of super Yandle, then I would reconsider his value. Remember, though, how dominant he was at times in 10-11. It should not be easy to let that go. I don't think Jordan Staal will ever be as effective as 10-11 Yandle.
