As bad as the Yashin trade looks now, it was very exciting when it happened as an Islander fan. Too bad he couldnt keep up his PPG pace here and Chara and Spezza turned into studs.

Also, just off the top of my head, I think the Islanders had missed the playoffs for like 8 straight years and then once they got Yashin they made it for like 4 out of 5 years. It was nice to be competitive gain.
