Arizona Coyotes Seeking To Reacquire Keith Yandle

If  Keith Yandle is going to be traded by the Florida Panthers, it's only because Yandle gives the green light. He has already stood his ground against a three way deal, but is he willing to waive his no-trade clause to return to the team that drafted him?

The Arizona Coyotes are said to be interested in acquiring Yandle once again. The Coyotes (then Phoenix) drafted him 105th overall in 2005. It appears that they want him back, but would he be willing to go?

Shane Doan has just made his return to the Coyotes organization. Although he is in an advisory role, his voice could be persuasive in obtaining his former teammate. The Coyotes aren't a terrible hockey team, but they surely aren't a good hockey team. Oliver Ekman-Larsson has been placed on LTIR and perhaps acquiring Yandle will be their only hope at salvaging the gaping hole on the blue line.
