My only guess is that they want to give York more time in the AHL? Yandle is still a good PPQB.

. . . a comedy to rival Buffalo's future Hall-of-Fame tandem of Craig Anderson and Aaron Dell. And in front of THAT defense!

Yandle is York insurance. If York comes into camp and looks ready to play Yandle is only making 20k more than so if Yandle sits it's not a big deal. As for Jones I have a feeling that they were looking at Holtby because he has a relationship with Hart but he told them he wanted to stay out west and so by the time they actually went to sign a goalie Jones was one of the few left. Jones also has a relationship with the goalie coach Kim Dillabaugh from his time in LA where jones was arguably at his best

You can’t scratch yandle, he has an iron man streak, it would be a really non classy move to sit him. They shouldn’t have signed him, get some other depth defenceman who you can sit and is actually decent in their own end. You have to sit Braun now if you wanna play York, and he is pretty solid. Him and York would be a great pair as York would learn from him.

I’ve cheered for Jones to bounce back every year and he just hasn’t. I don’t think it’s there anymore. Maybe in a hopefully winning environment and the goalie coach it can get better, but it’s a tough bet.

If Yandle is the worst dman on the team he's going to be the one to sit I think he realized that it's possible the streak might end when signing else where. I don't expect him to sit at the beginning of the season I think Yandle is in the game one line up but he was a depth signing and again its insurance if York isn't ready you can't play Morin every night it wouldn't work. As for Jones I personally think it was a bad signing but think the reasons I said previously are why they brought him in. I would have preferred Reimer or Halak but I guess they got what they could
