Keith Yandle is optimistic and eager to get going for the 2017-18 campaign.
Yandle is looking forward to the upcoming season because the team will have healthy stars Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov back. He also likes that Dale Tallon is back in control of roster decisions. "Having Dale back in charge, I think that was the main thing that got everyone going," Yandle said. "You sense the power over the locker room that Dale can have. It's such a positive thing when you have a guy like Dale Tallon. Everyone respects him and everything he does for the team. Going into the season knowing he has our back, he has the team, and obviously that he hired great coaches too, it's a great thing." Jul 27 - 3:03 PM

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman also mentioned the possibility of Vegas selecting Yandle in the expansion draft and trading him to another team.
