Per The Score, the Rangers have not had any contract talks with UFA defenseman Keith Yandle. Yandle was acquired from Arizona in a trade that cost the Rangers Anthony Duclair and a first round pick this year. Yandle was easily the Rangers best puck mover last season, which is critical as the league moves more towards mobile puck movers on the blue line. Yandle was also the only player that could be paired with a one-legged Dan Girardi and still function somewhat normally.
This likely means that Yandle is a goner, something we’ve been expecting for some time now.
