Yandle hasn't even theoretically peaked, and I'm uncomfortable trading the guy based off the assumption that OEL will continue upwards and the AHL guys developing. This is a long term trade here, not a deadline rental. You have to consider all likely scenarios.
I'm curious as to why Yandle is always in play. Isn't he the odds on favorite to inherit the captaincy? He also re-signed, and at a pretty good rate too. They've got a 40+ point #2 locked down for 4 more years and yet want to move him? Is there something I'm missing beyond him being the only real trading chip we have?
