"B.) Yashin unsigned and demanding 10 million fetched Spezza and Chara"

And it was one of the most lopsided trades in the last decade. (Don't forget who made that deal!)

It doesn't matter because the Sens wouldn't be able to afford Bertuzzi either.
True the sens would not be able to afford bert unless the dumped Alfredsson.

The Yashin trade is not in the same stratosphere as the Naslund deal, the Bertuzzi/McCabe/Ruutu for Linden deal, the Demitra deal, the Satan deal...where should I stop? More.....OK about V Kozlov for the first rounder that was Lecavalier, Luongo/Jokinen for Parrish, the Scatchard for Potvin trade (Potvin later dumped for a mid round pick), Peca for Pyatt and Connolly (Isles finally win a long shot), the Boucher/Handzus trade......are we getting the point?
