I was talking about the 50 contract limit. I think they're at 48. I don't think that would change next CBA.

Yashin hasn't been in the NHL for 1/2 a decade and he's 38 with almost no meaningful NHL playoff experience and even less personal or team success in those NHL postseasons. His attitude is a big question too. He would probably ask for a big contract too after seeing what some of the other older vets signed for. I would rather see a gamble on the kids. I don't think they'll really look into him anyway.
