Examine Their Heads!!
firm offer from an NHL team". Now, we take anything written in Russia with a HUGE grain of salt, as they are known to just plane, make shit up, and we have heard similar rumblings the last couple of seasons but since this time Yashin is not signed with a KHL team there may be some teeth/veracity to this rumour.
2) Let me say firstly that if ANYONE were to sign 38 year old Alexie yashin to a contract of ANY length we would advocate that the person be subject to immediate urine/blood tests as well as a mandatory brain scan to determine if they are on hallucinogenic drugs or suffered from brain damage/mental illness. Its simply insane to even think about adding him. It was dumb when the Isles added him at the prime of his career but after he had quit on his original team, the Ottawa Senators. It was compounded by the insanely dumb trade made by idiot Mike Milbury. (Yashin and Bill Muckalt for Spezza and Chara.)
3) As we stated earlier this rumour has been out there each summer for the past few years. In fact last summer it was reported that Yashin was seen working out on Long Island. That in of itself means nothing. He's stil friends with Isle's owner Charlie Wang, and is married-? to Long Island's Carol Alt so being there is not exactly a smoking gun. Additionally his KHL stats have been steadily declining. From overa point a game back in 09-10, to under half a point per game last season. In other words its not like he's been lighting up the KHL like Jagr was doing before his return. Another reason this move would be NUTS!
