Yashin's style of play is indeed fairly phlegmatic, but the lazy and selfish tags are by and large a creation of the North American media. He has been excellent in most of his [now 100 and soon to be 101] games for Russia and was one of the few players who always unconditionally accepted the call to play at the World Champions during Russian hockey's recent trough.
