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.
