I would certainly not mind Yashin... I have seen him a lot in Ottawa and he can do just about everything on the ice. The problem with Yashin is that he is not THE go-to guy that everyone wants him to be. In MTL he would be playing behind Koivu which would be great for him. Has someone else mentioned, the only way I would do that deal would be as follows:

Bonk and MTL's First, for Yashin + Ilse 1st. I think this would be a fair deal, our cap would take a 5M hit given Bonks salary release. I would tend to agree that a Perezhogin/Kostitsyn-Yashin-Kovalev line would give us quite a second line. We would probably call it our top line based on point production.

Higgins, Koivu, Ryder
Kostsitsyn, Yashin, Kovalev
Perezhogin, Plekanek, Latendresse
Begin, Lapierre, Murray

That would look pretty good to me...
