Yashin gets a worse rap than he probably deserves, well he deserves it for what he did in Ottawa but for the Islanders he was overpaid to carry a terrible team and couldn't do it but for all reports was a good teammate there who did try, he just wasn't a leader on or off the ice, he didn't have that drive...if Girgorenko ends up another Yashin his reputation will be completely different just because the expectations are so much different.

It's all about narrative...Look at how Plekanec suddenly got a new army of haters as soon as he had a 70 point season and couldn't repeat it regularly.
