Hopefully the trade market will heat up tomorrow morning.

Edit: some talk on the main board about Yandle potentially moving. nervous that Darcy doesn't wait too long/play chicken/push too hard for a one-sided deal to the point that suitors decide to shop elsewhere. Could be singing Darcy's praises in 24 or wondering why nothing has happened and feeling sick.
While in a market all things have effect on the other, there may be plenty of separation in the teams interested in acquiring Yandle vs Sekera vs Leopold vs McNabb/Pysyk/etc. Yandle would be targeted as a top pairing guy with the highest cost of the bunch. I don't disagree with the point though and I imagine Darcy's already had some preliminary talks. Though, he may or may not want to hold off to see what happens with these unknown free agent offers he has on the table.
