Yandle wont throw those weak wristed shots from 50 feet in on goal. haha.
but yeah I agree. Yandle is below average defensively. He would be the perfect guy to focus the blame away from Bryzgalov or whoever is in goal.
This team does need a guy like Yandle tho. yes he does have issues on the defensive side of the puck. Guys that can bring the offense but are weaker defensively usually aren't available via trade. If they do acquire him we are just going to have to accept who he is. But they have to go get someone who can get the forwards the puck.

I could see him putting up 60-70 points, which would be pretty significant...a whole new threat for this team.
60-70 points would be a stretch.
