Does that mean it isn't a one-sided trade?

Yashin wasn't a top-5 player in the league. He scored better than a ppg just twice in his career and those years, he finished 6th (33 points behind Jagr) and 11th (again, 33 points behind Jagr).

Also, there were some guys like Sakic, Bure, Lemieux... Not a chance Yashin was ever top-5.
