The Canes just became stronger up the middle with the signing of 6"2 center Stephane Yelle for a very reasonable price of $550,000. He had a solid year in Boston with 7 goals and 11 assists. Along with being plus/minus 6 for the season, Yelle won 52% of his faceoffs and is a fearless shock blocker. Yelle brings along 2 Stanley Cup rings from '96 and '01 with the Colorado Avalanche. He is a savy veteran who knows what it takes to win the cup. You can never have too many proven winners in the locker room.
