A young guy who can pot 20+ goals a season, plays the PP and PK very well.
A young promising defenseman who could have potentially have a similar offensive upside as Yandle(perhaps not as many points, but not far behind).

It just doesn't make sense, that package for Yandle. I love Yandle, I'm a huge Yotes fan after my Flyers. But this past year, he played on the second pairing with OEL. I mean, I know it's Tip's system but still. I just don't like the proposal, at all. Maybe I'm alone in that, but I wouldn't do it.
Not saying the Flyers should do that deal, but dear God your evaluation of Yandle and the way you phrase your descriptions of each piece is way off.

Gustafsson not that far off from Yandle with similar upside. LOL.
