A young star does have leverage, just like Yashin had. Ottawa hurt tremendously because of that holdout. They may have won the cup by now if they had been able to pay Yashin what he wanted.
lol ... poor OTT, they only traded Yashin for Spezza AND Chara and those theives in NYI are stuck with Yashin at 9m per season.

how did OTT lose on that ? my goodness man.
