Yandle signed a seven-year deal with Florida that carries a cap hit of $6.35 million per season.
84% of readers said that they would not have given Yandle that contract.
Jeff Gorton said over the summer "we lost Yandle who was a real good player for us, terrific guy. It's a big hit and we are looking to see where we can go from there and how to get better whether it's on defense or at forward."
In 18 games this season, Yandle has 9 assists, 6 at even strength and 3 on the PP, and an average of 22:30 per game.
In 18 games this season, Brady Skjei has 11 assists, 9 at even strength and 2 on the PP, and an average of 16:40 per game.
Nick Holden has 2 goals and 8 assists in 18 games for the Rangers with an average of 19:33 per game.
The Rangers have the 5th ranked PP while Florida has the 20th ranked PP.
Adam Rotter: So far, at least, the Rangers haven't really missed Keith Yandle. They have gotten more production and probably better overall play from Brady Skjei, at a fraction of the cost, and haven't really looked back. Yandle is a solid player who the Rangers would have liked to keep, but salary restrictions didn't allow that. Fortunately for the Rangers, again, so far, the loss of Yandle hasn't really hurt the Rangers.
