Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle’s decision to stay stateside during the lockout had little to do conditioning and competition.

Both were offered at his off-season home and native Boston, where he skated at Boston University with other players in drills led by former NHL player Mike Grier.

Instead, Yandle focused on the process of picking a team and putting on a new uniform. And he didn’t feel right doing either.

“The Coyotes are my team,” Yandle said. “I didn’t want to play for another team and be with another organization. I wanted to just always be loyal to this team and always play here. Obviously a lot of guys went to play, but I’m happy with my decision to stay.”

Why do I feel like this is the kiss of death?
