On the topic of Yandle, consensus around HF is if we want him, we can get him. Only question is if Army is willing to give up the assets that would take to get him.
Like Organist said, scouting doesn't weigh possible future hypothetical trades in their decision making. At the time of the draft they might have thought they'd get Garrison, for example. There are a million variables, guys on the roster can get hurt or stop producing or someone can come out of nowhere and overachieve and needs can change year to year.

As for Yandle, they have the assets to get him and I would be thrilled if they did get him. He's that good of a player. He would be the best player in any deal that would go down. We'll just have to wait and see on that. Yandle would be more expensive to get than Gormley so all you're weighing is how much more you'd have to give up. It's not like I'm in a rush to get rid of Schwartz, he's a glittering offensive prospect. Just think it's a viable alternative idea.
