He isn't physical, he has horrible character and his defensive game is shot. Maybe some crap team could take a chance on him for 500K. If I was a GM I wouldn't go near him.


Opinion isn't reality.

500k will get you a guy who can barely qualify for this level of play, and will probably contribute 8 points while being a -11.

Whether you like Yashin or not, he's a guy who scored 781 points in 850 games, a career .91 points per game in the NHL. The guy can pass and can shoot. He can play Center or wing. Even at his age, I sincerely doubt he'd be playing for under 2 million. We pay Raymond over 2 million for 20 points, and Pahlsson made 2.75 million for 4 goals. I'll gladly take Yashin on the 2nd line over Raymond.

Strictly trying to boost his value for a KHL contract. Even if teams did offer it there's no chance he's taking it seroiusly, he's only using it as leverage.

Considering the Devils only have 2 actual centers that had more than 10 points last season, they could certainly use Yashin, old or not. Yeah, Zajac was injured, and Zubrus was playing center, but I think another decent center/wing would certainly help their depth, especially if Sykora isn't back for the utility depth.

I actually would love for Yashin to return and see Milbury's reaction.

I can't stand Milbury and his anti Canuck bias.

The icing on the cake would be Yashin comes to Vancouver and scores the Stanley Cup winning goal in a re-match vs Milbury's beloved Bruins! :)


That would be awesome! I hate Milbury

Buyouts if I remember correctly are resolved once they are accepted by the league. The player being bought out receives 2/3 of the money remaining on the contract value in a lump sum, the resultant cap hit spread over twice the remaining term is really just smoke. It counts toward the cap ceiling of the team, but there's no actual money being spent year to year.

At the 2001 draft.

To OTT: Chara, Muckalt and 2nd overall (Spezza)
To NYI: Yashin (UFA)

:picard:

Milbury is so smart, and also good at everything.

8 points and -11...Yashin seems capable. I am not denying his skill level and abilities when he was in the NHL.

He is 38 and has had major declines in production from 64 points in 09-10 down to 20 points last season. Shirokov on the same team put up 47 and he also got outscored by guys like Parshin and Zubov.
Sig too big.

How about a training camp invite? Let him prove he wants to be on the team by taking on Kassian? :bigblush:

1 year, 1m contract.

Give him a shot. If he's in it for the money, then he won't take it. If he wants one last crack at it, then he will, as he'd get a real chance to make a difference.

I remember watching him... his talent was always incredible, but he just didn't have the heart. Maybe he's grown one in his old age; he did start to show some leadership for the Isles when he got bought out, simply because he cost too much.

It's a no risk signing if it's done on the cheap. If you want a reclamation project, bring in one who originally had the talent to begin with.


Yashin = center.

Yashin is useless in Vancouver. He is old, and he is a winger. Raymond has a far more value than he does.

Yashin>Raymond + Yashin=versatility & utility that MG appreciates - (LW/C, PP unit, etc.)

Low risk high reward if we can snag him for under 2Mil for 1year contract. Yashin probably wants to win a cup too and what better position he would be in achieving this than with the Canucks. Worst case scenario he is demoted to the 4th line. Let's get him to at least the tryout camp before we sign him or not.

GHL, are you actually thinking that Yashin is a good option for us, and furthermore would bump Kesler down to the 3rd line?

Better option than Kesler as 2C yes. Centers pass to their wings. Good centers pass to their wings and score some. Great centers are rare.

Kesler on the third line, where he belongs, wins the Cup; one of the hardest job in hockey is 3C and Kesler does it perfectly.

Can Yashin be that 1Cb? Most likely not. But the Canucks are in need of a legitimate secondary threat which Kesler as a 2C does not offer.

Lecavalier or Thornton would be sufficient.

While I agree with you mostly, Lecavlier has a $7.7M contract and Thornton is a cool $7M.

Yeah, if we got a more naturally offensive 2nd line center who was actually better than Kesler, then he would be the best 3rd line center in the league, hands down.

Where the hell are we going to get one of those?

Yashin is NOT better than Kesler, and you should be tarred and feathered if you think there's even a possibility that he is.

I could probably count on one hand how many 2Cs there are in the league that are available and good enough to bump Kesler to 3C, and to get any of them we'd have to trade assets to get them.

Oh wait, we could offer Ballard Raymond Schroeder Rodin and a 1st.

Plan the parade.

Sorry guys... U are on crack if u think Kesler is #3 center.

70 points. 30+ assists... Come on.

Forget the pass first bs... He passed first a bunch when he was healthy and had speed - hard to make space with your speed so u can pass to someone wen u are hobbled...

Lockout is the best thing thy can happen for kess.... Could turn him from a 30-40 point guy to a 70-80 point guy - if he can actually get healthy. Same thing happened to selanne last lockout, if u recall?

I'd be quite happy with Yashin filling in on the 2nd line while Kesler was rehabbing. We would then have the option of trying Yashin with Kesler and Booth on the 2nd or switching Yashin or Kesler into the 3rd spot depending on what look they wanted to go for (a shutdown line or a 3rd line for scoring). An experienced guy that can play Center or Wing gives a lot of flexibility. We have nobody on the roster that would have better potential as a fill in like this.

Kesler:

77GP 22G 27A 49PTS
82GP 41G 32A 73PTS
82GP 25G 50A 75PTS
82GP 26G 33A 59PTS

Hopefully you're right in your assessment of Kesler. So far, he looks done. I mean according to CDC, one bad year determines the career...

If indeed one could say Kesler is a passer, thanks to Sundin, he trusts not his wings then.

It will probably be irrelevant since neither Yashin or any other player will likely play in the NHL this season... (or at least start the season on time).
