Perhaps the Blues...they are looking for a third-line center, and with Tarasenko joining the NHL-roster this season..???


Just to be clear, I donīt believe that Armstrong would have much interest in Yashin, but just throwing it out there because it could very well be a fit for them...

If this is legit, I could see the Yotes doing it. They need to take on salary and are in desperate need of a no. 1 centerman with mentoring abilities.

Are people being serious with this? At first I thought it was a joke, but now I'm not so sure.

Why is it that some people seem to think Russians can only play with other Russians?

When Russians are on the ice, do they pick up the puck and replace it with a square one or something?

You might think that Yashin does, given how terrible he is.

It's become a running joke in this thread.

I can think of many words to describe Alexei Yashin, for some reason, mentor isn't one of them.

Yashin was/is greedy when it comes to being a mercenary of the game. However, he still has experience both in the NHL and KHL. To dismiss his ability to mentor younger players on how to play in either league is foolish. Yashin can provide feedback to players that are not prepared yet to play in the NHL, especially a Russian player with limited English abilities.

Most teams would not take Yashin for this option, but all it takes one team to see the potential in a Russian player who has played in the NHL to help another Russian player acclimate to the NHL game. Antropov and Ponikarovsky helped Nikolai Kulemin when he didn't know a lick of English, so it is possible.

The Modano rumor started because someone found a 2-year-old interveiw and thought it was current news.

There's one thing Yashin can mentor Yakupov in: sign an astronomical contract with horses ass pretending to be a GM and then proceed to suck balls.

That's putting it in polite terms.

This has been retweeted by Elliotte Friedman who's as reliable as they come.

Yashin has not played in the NHL since 2007 and is still being paid by the Islanders up until 2015.

Thoughts?
What evidence is there that this isn't just a vague statement to try and influence contract negotiations in the KHL? I doubt there's any truth to this one.

I think the Sharks could be a possibility for Yashin. They could have him take Thornton under his wing and possibly mentor him on and off the ice.

Hopefully its the Leafs. What's the harm right? I don't even know if I'm being sarcastic anymore.

This is at least the 2nd time, Yashin's agent has said he's got an NHL offer since being bought out.

I'm not sure I buy it. It sounds like his agent is trying to drum up interest.

Pittsburgh. Malkin could be taken under Yashin's "wing".

His agent has said this three years running. It's the annual Yashin watch that involves no watching because all it is, is leverage for another KHL deal. Every year. And people still buy it.

Wouldn't mind if Gillis throws him a league minimum contract offer just to create competition for our forwards, the way he got Nolan on a tryout contract last year. Worst case scenario he A) doesn't accept or B) accepts, plays badly and gets waived/traded. Best case scenario we get a big veteran with hands on a sweet contract.

I certainly don't think he'll bite on a league minimum offer, but doesn't cost anything to send him one anyways.
