    Keith Yandle Available For Trade, Will Not Play For Panthers This Season

    The Florida Panthers have made the major decision to move away from one of their veteran leaders. Appearing on TSN’s “Insider Trading”, Frank Seravalli states that the Panthers have told Keith Yandle that he is not in their plans for this season. This appears to be a mere personnel choice for Florida and new GM Bill Zito, as Seravalli reports that he has simply “fallen out of favor”.

    However, Yandle’s current contract – a seven-year, $44.5MM pact with three years remaining – contains a full No-Movement Clause. He cannot be placed on waivers without his permission, nor can he be traded without approving the deal. As a result, the only plan for now appears to be making him a healthy scratch. While this will sadly mean the end of Yandle’s NHL-best 866-game “iron man” consecutive games played streak, he will still be a member of the team getting paid in full for his (lack of) services. That clearly cannot last for the Panthers.

    He should just sit back and cash those checks while sitting by the pool, and say a big F U to the Panthers.

    Wow...another one that I'm glad the Rangers didn't give a big contract to. This has the makings of an ugly situation. I wonder if he showed up to camp in just pure shit shape. Don't understand the timing of this at all otherwise.

    Weird decision. Hasn't he been pretty good for them?

    that contract is tough and, on its last year, they will need to give Barkov a big raise but otherwise, it's not like they are going to be in cap trouble.

    I'd be tempted to lol.

    The team agreed to the contract, it's on them. Don't like it? don't give out full no-move clauses then, especially not to players you are telling to not even show up anymore

    What a stupid decision to do right now with the season about to start. To announce it like this and announce they won't play him? How does that not handcuff the team and also a, very bad look considering his iron man streak?

    Unless I'm missing something here and he in fact is having an affair with quenvilles daughter?

    They're using the iron man streak as leverage. Waive the NTC, or don't play. It's shitty. He's played well for them.

    Might have made sense to make this decision say, a month or two ago. Even though movement won have been slow, teams would probably have inquired,,like maybe a Boston.

    I don't think this is all that surprising. I read somewhere that he was demoted to the 3rd pair in camp. Sounds like Q has no time for him.

    Also, the way they're handling it, it sounds like something must have happened or else you'd think they just let him

    Salary aside, there are gonna be worse guys to have on your third pair.

    Even without this becoming public, it's hard to move that contract without taking one back. Now it'll be next to impossible to not take back a problem contract, let alone any value to help the organization

    If I'm Yandle, I show up to practice every day. If they don't want you on the ice, you get in the weight room and keep being ready to play. Show up to any game in a suit and tie, ready to be a healthy scratch. Just don't give them a reason to say you are violating your contract.

    I'm curious as to why they are so down on him, as he got pretty universally good reviews last year. All this based on a poor 10 day training camp? Whatever. I'd only do Smith for Yandle with 50% retention on Yandle's contract. I think if he waived the NMC clause it would be waived for good, but I'm not sure about that.
