A look back at the Keith Yandle trade

When the news came out that the New York Rangers had traded top prospect Anthony Duclair, a first and second-round pick and John Moore in the Keith Yandle deal, I was initially dismayed.

Looking at Keith Yandle’s play so far with the New York Rangers

He’s only been on the team for three games, but Keith Yandle has already made an impact on the offensive side of the picture for the New York Rangers with his intelligent passes and strong offensive awareness. While the Rangers are 1/6 on the power play in those three games, that number does not indicate how productive those power plays actually were. With Keith Yandle put on...

Salary cap implications of the Keith Yandle trade

Once again it seemed like Rangers GM Glen Sather had little to no maneuverability under the salary cap, and once again Slats found a way to wriggle his payroll under the cap ceiling.
