Yandle led the Coyotes in points this season with 53 and was tied for the NHL lead amongst blueliners with 31 power play points as the Coyotes had the fourth most goals (tied) and the fourth best efficiency rating in the NHL on the pp. But defensively it was a different story as Yandle was a minus-23 this season. here's always that risk-reward factor in it," coach Dave Tippett said. "With Yands, his power-play play this year went to another level, went to a level we hadn't seen before. He took a responsibility for improving our power play and a leadership role and did a very good job. That being said, his defensive play is still - it's inconsistent."
