The Philadelphia Flyers proved in the playoffs that their defense needed some focus in the offseason.
Luke Schenn was brought in from the Toronto Maple Leafs for James van Riemsdyk, but the Flyers lost out on Shea Weber when the Nashville Predators matched the offer sheet.
If Philly is still in the market for a defenseman, Yandle is a great fit.
Ilya Bryzgalov shoulders much of the responsibility for Philadelphia’s playoff collapse, but one of the best ways to mask a weak goaltender is by having a stout defense.
Kimmo Timonen and Chris Pronger are both 37, and Pronger was only able to suit up for 13 games during the regular season.
While Yandle may not be Weber, he still is a young, top-flight defenseman that the Flyers would love to lock up for four more years.
