just looking at Yandle (this year) other than a couple of 3-point nights, he has been inconsistent. i am not sure why this is...skinner seems poised to become a great forward espcially in points only and is/was CAR 2nd leading scorer before the injury. CAR is a much better offensive team than PHO so that weighs in on my comparison of the two as well.
i would do this deal, more for the future than for this year (obviously) as there is no real word on progression from skinner. if you can afford to take the chance, its still a good deal.
Thanks for that great reply!
I would love to have a (healthy) player like Skinner on my team.
I know Yandle is inconsistent. But I'm in 1st place right now and I don't want to lose this edge...
I have to figure if my depth at D could overcome the lose of Yandle...
