I still say Yandle stole your girl or something, seems like the most plausible explanation here.
I thought I pretty clearly explained polarizing. Let's say half the teams in the NHL like Yandle and half don't. A good season increases those teams that like him and decreases our chances of trading him. If he has a bad season, fewer teams would like him, making him a harder candidate to trade. Especially bc we are locked into a longer term deal (albeit at a reasonable price).

If Staal has a bad year next year, does that change the teams need for a forward? If Yandle wins the Norris next year, does that change that we have players like OEL and Gormley, who are very strong players with a great future ahead?
