Oh. In that case I think Howson should adopt this brilliant and unbeatable strategy with Subban next year.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

I can't imagine a better fit for Boston than Yandle. He's from here, he scored nearly 60 points this year on a team without a lot of firepower up front and on a team with a pretty tight defensive system. He's only 24, which fits right in with guys like Bergeron, Krejci, Horton, Lucic, Seguin, Marchand, Rask...

Yeah, 4 first round picks is a monstrous price to pay but this is a guy who's already producing at an elite level and is still ~4 years away from his prime. I'd like to think those picks would be in the bottom10 of the draft. And with that young core, and what looks like a good group of prospects coming along in the next 2-3 years, think the B's could get by without them.
There is only one team in the entire NHL that could get away with offer sheeting Yandle that scares me. The Boston Bruins. Those 4 1st rounders would probably never be higher than #20. Yandle would be adored in Boston to a degree that we can never provide here in the desert. The Bruins have enough young talent that they wouldn't miss those picks too badly and would probably be competing for the Cup all four years, so Cup parades rather than entry draft's would probably be the focus in Beantown. And at some point, I wouldn't blame Yandle for wanting to secure his future. The longer this ownership issue drags out, the more realistic this seems.

That would be an extremely bad move for the Habs to even consider. Let us worry about signing at least two of Wiz, Markov and Gorges before giving up 1st rounders on offer sheets.

Well said. It is a very interesting option to consider...

Boston's cupboards are empty?

They have a ton of high quality forward prospects and the #9 pick this year. Seguin, Knight, Spooner, Suave, and Caron are all very good forward prospects. they have a few guys on D but not as high quality as the forwards and they will have over $10 million in cap space to replace a couple of guys and all of those forward prospects could make a push to make the team in Boston.

If Savard can't return, they will have over $14 million in cap space, it looks like they are in a fantastic position in the off season and could pretty easily add a high paid player if they want to especially since it is almost a given that Jordan Caron will make the team next year and only have a salry of around $1 million.

2 things. Because Nashville has the money to match the offer while Phoenix does not. And we would need to give less in compensation to get him.

I think Phoenix would have to throw in 6M to get phoenix to back off of this one... if Yandle was playing on a team capable of spending a lot of money right now I imagine it would cost more.

There are a number of Coyotes that are UFA's and with the possibility of some of their salaries coming off the books, the Coyotes still have to meet the League minimum. The money that was used to pay these players will be allocated towards key RFA's like Yandle.

Jovo's 6.5 million off the books
Fiddler's 1.1 million may or may not be
Belanger .750 will be off the books as he is not expected to re-sign

That's a total of 8 350 000 that is likely not going to be re-signed.

If Bryzgalov were to sign elsewhere that's another 4.25 million off the books and Vrbata made 3 million last year although he is expected to be re-signed should the team remain in Phoenix.

Coyotes will NOT just allow some other teams to poach arguably their best player.

Good point. But it comes down to if Yandle really wants to play in Winnipeg or not.

No it doesn't. Yandle won't be a UFA for another 3 years.

He plays where the team goes (IF it goes).

Makes no sense whatsoever for the Habs to throw away picks and throw big money on a skilled d-man with Markov wisniewski Subban and Weber available at no cost(they can re-sign Markov and Wiz before July 1st).

Coyotes still hold his rights. They can match the offer and he has no choice. For the record, Yandle has never said anything about not wanting to remain with the Team if it were to move. That's merely speculation on everybody's part.

These are professional athletes who really should be conducting themselves professionally. They earn the right to choose where they play when they reach unrestricted free agency.

Hopefully his signing does not come down to the scenario based on the team moving because to be perfectly honest, I'd rather have the Atlanta Thrashers move to Winnipeg. DO NOT WANT THE COYOTES.

Yet I am a Coyotes fan.
