Rumor: Rangers trying to get a handle on Yandle

DONE DEAL!!!!

News is coming in from top NHL insiders that the Rangers are in discussions to acquire Keith Yandle of the Arizona Coyotes.

However, the asking price apparently is steep.

Keith Yandle has 1 year remaining on his contract with a cap hit of 5.2M. The 28 year old defenseman has 4 goals and 41 points in 63 games this season and would give the Rangers the deepest defense group in the playoffs. It would also give their PP a shot in the arm as Dan Boyle has failed to do so.

Does Mats Zuccarello also go in return? This is going to be one hell of a deal and a possible game changer if it goes down.

Stay tuned.
