1) We came across this funny story from one of our fellow bloggers, Jes Gőlbez over at 'Hockey Rants'. Evidently our favourite whipping boy, Alexei Ya$hin has some relationship problems. According to the NY POST Ya$hin's long time girlfriend, aging (47) model Carol Alt was seen hanging with Swedish Ranger star goalie Henrik Lundqvist.
2) To refresh the memories of some of us not up to speed with Carol's past exploits. WAYYYYY back in the early 1980's, when she was still a super model she hooked up and married Ranger defensemen Ron Greschner. They stayed together right up until Ron retired. Then, apparently Carol didn't want to retreat back to Goodsoil, SASK to live once hockey was over so she found a new beau hockey player, the aforementioned Alexei Ya$hin. He was 19 years younger than Greshner, and apparently more importantly, still playing in the NHL.
3) Which leads us to now. After the Islander's buy=out of the oft(deserved) maligned, and over paid center, there were few offers that Ya$hin felt were worthy of his talent, so he flew back to Russia for a real pay cheque. Surprising (to some) Ms. Alt did NOT follow her long time boy friend over the pond, but instead stayed in the states. Which seemed reasonable. Many couples have long distance working relationships. Reasonable, until this story broke.
4) Evidently, and we don't have confirmation from other sources yet, but Carol has taken a liking to yet another hockey player, Henrik Lundqvist. Some may recall our exclusive 'outing of Henrik's sometimes reckless partying habits last fall. Well, the 25 year old Swede must have been intoxicated to go after the geriatric hockey harlot. As we wrote on the Rant blog She's 47 for Christ's sakes! Does Lundqvist have some unresolved Oedipus issues that the Rangers may want to address? It was creepy enough to see her with Ya$hin. If this is true it would be down right nauseating. She was once incredibly hot, but nowadays how could a young, rich hockey player want this??:
