Free Agent Frenzy

Today this entry will be a running entry tracking all rumors and signings from around the NHL. Anything the Islanders are involved in will be placed in bold. If you hear something & don't see it posted here as long as its from a reputable source meaning no hockeybuzz or things like that feel free to post it in comments. Without further adeu:

1:44AM - On twitter many reliable writers including Bob McKenzie have said that the Coyotes may explore the trade market for Keith Yandle if they can't sign him to an extension. Yandle is 24 years old and had 59 points for the Coyotes last season.

It has been said by Botta, Strang, BD, and quoted on the isles twitter timeline from Garth Snow that the Islanders will look to the trade market to acquire a legit top four defenseman because none of the free agents left are to appealing. To me Yandle would be a great guy to trade for as to me at least he is better then Ehrhoff. Only question with him is if he'd sign here. There's talk that hes not sold on the future of Phoenix which is why hes reluctant to sign there.
