Stauffer said on today's show the Oil are interested in Yandle. He's LD so fits what Stauffer has been saying.
We know at draft they rejected Gags and Paajarvi. Gags has improved so his value has increased.
I'm not the biggest Yandle fans but I think I'd be okay with a Gags and Hemsky trade for Yandle.
We might have to pick up some of Hemskys salary to make it work though
I've been assuming something around Gagner and Yandle.
Spec's tweet said that after talking with MacT, Gagner is moved in the summer. Add in a deep draft in terms of C's, and our need for LHD who can move the puck, it makes a lot of sense.
Yandle is only 26 too, so he fits in here long term.
I'm not sure I like moving Gagner, especially with the season he's had, but I can see us going in that direction.
