Surprisingly enough, I think I would rather have Yashin and his contract over signing Arnott, for example. They'd be pretty close to the same player, perhaps some occasional grit from Arnott and some more production from Yashin separating them. And with Kovalev and Markov and some of the players on the way, maybe we don't have too bad an environment for him.

I see his salary listed at $7.4M on the TSN tracker, though. That, for 5 years, would still be a huge albatross, no matter how the NHL salary market shifts over that time.

If Brassard was available at #7, though... hmmm.

No, ultimately it can't be done. But it did make me say "hmmm"!
