Wrong. The public hated Gandler, not Yashin. Yashin was cheered when he played in Ottawa. He was extremely popular and people who met him only had good things to say about. All my buddies here are Sens fans and they all agree that Yashin was a victim of bad advice. The fans here new that Gandler was pulling the strings.

The Sens chose to spend the 6 or 7 million Gandler wanted on Alfredsson, Bonk, Hossa, etc...It's all about long-term forcasting and not making personel decisions that will impact the future.
