That being said when he doesn't have his head up his butt he's a very effective player.

I do maintain however that I don't believe we can ice a team with both Rundblad and Yandle in the lineup. First off I think Tippett would likely have an aneurism if he had them both in the lineup for a prolonged period.
He's also the second best passer on the squad, and I think this team relies heavily on a mobile defense that can effectively move the puck up ice. Yandle can pass and skate quite well. Very mobile defender. I think he's a good fit for the team, myself. I think we need him.

It's a new dawn, a new day, and the country club is gone, washed away. Thanks to Andy Barroway.
