Chelios has only missed a few seasons. You're forgetting a bunch of guys who have tried for the Leafs in the not so distant past: Thomas, Allison, O'Neill.
I was really rooting for Fleury in his attempted come back, thought he might actually have a decent chance.
Not sure why anyone would want Yashin. Probably still has some skill, but would have a negative mentorship impact and would have to overpay him to compete with the money he could earn in the KHL.
