1 yr @ 1 million, sure why not?

Would rather not see it happen and I don't want to see Stan waste a remaining contract slot on him with so much offseason left.

MagicSlap* 07-21-2012 10:07 AM

1 year, let's do it! Can't be any worse than Kruger can he?

There's basically nothing left at this point. Yashin, I mean, he could probably put up about 40 points as 2nd line C. This would be my plan H but it's still a plan and has no downside. Waive his ass if you need a roster spot for someone better later on in the season.

Pepe Silvia 07-21-2012 10:38 AM

yeah let's hope bowman makes a move just for the hell of it :sarcasm:

i'd rather see kane, sharp, pirri, etc. as the 2C

I was talking about the 50 contract limit. I think they're at 48. I don't think that would change next CBA.

Yashin hasn't been in the NHL for 1/2 a decade and he's 38 with almost no meaningful NHL playoff experience and even less personal or team success in those NHL postseasons. His attitude is a big question too. He would probably ask for a big contract too after seeing what some of the other older vets signed for. I would rather see a gamble on the kids. I don't think they'll really look into him anyway.

Teravainen 07-21-2012 01:16 PM

can you say no? I'd rather have a prospect do it and get some time in the majors.

DisgruntledHawkFan 07-21-2012 02:15 PM

A team that's problem is effort level? Add Yashin. Brilliant.

Hawkaholic 07-21-2012 04:02 PM

No thanks, another run of the mill FA. Soft, and not a difference maker.
Pass.

SugarKane88 07-21-2012 08:09 PM

Hell no.

Blackhawkswincup 07-22-2012 12:08 AM

If this was 2000 ,, Sure

Yashin + Zhamnov as 1-2 punch down middle = Happy BWC

It is 2012

Yashin is washed up fading star with too much issues with regard to his work ethic in his final years in NHL to bring in

rick hawk 07-22-2012 07:24 AM

If you want to sign an old center for one year try Arnott.

madgoat33 07-22-2012 08:59 AM

not as fast as i can say "hell no"

Bubba88 07-22-2012 10:08 AM

will he even get a contract in the KHL?

Rexy 07-22-2012 03:32 PM

I thought this thread was bumped from five years ago :lol:

carry on.

giza 07-23-2012 11:16 AM

Poison
 
Once poison, always poison. Leave him in Siberia on the Russian front where he belongs. Never!!!!!!!!!!!!

hawksfan50 07-23-2012 12:14 PM

uh,no thanks...if we are going to add an ex-nhl'er KHL refugee --btter we add Brent Sopel who will not be returning to Novokuznetsk Metallurg ,but wants back in the NHL...

could help our PK...block shots...7th d otherwise..

Perro 07-23-2012 04:01 PM

38 years old, only 20 pts in the KHL last year. Not sure he is worth it ot sign. Maybe offer him a camp try out.

Ace Rothstein 07-23-2012 04:45 PM

Yashin? No, thanks.
