EDIT: that title should say "if contract offers don't improve."

Well this should do wonders for his image. His agent is a moron if he thought making these statements would somehow help.

Gee, what else could it be besides the buyout that's factoring into the "low" offers for Yashin?

As you guys know, I am all for bringing Yashin to Detroit. But this is one of the reasons that the dude's image is tarnished. Stupid statements as such. Sure, you can have that in the back of your mind, but why would you come out say something like that to the media? Ignorance. There is also a reason that the offers that are being sent his way are as low as they are. I would love for him to be a Wing but at the end of the day, I see him going back to Russia to play.

This is good news, because I bet Holland has dreams of bringing this act to Detroit next season.

Memo to Yashin: "No-one cares. And listen, while you're still deciding what to do, don't answer any calls coming from the 313 areacode. Thanks."

i had no problem with Yashin playing for the Wings but with statements like that you have to think this guy is more about the money than winning. he already got his buyout payday and SHOULD take whatever he gets as an added bonus and play with a team with a strong chance of WINNING. i mean he it's not like a team would be offer him peanuts, i am sure he would still get a decent contract on top of his buyout he already got. i am kinda bummed on him now. (if infact he, not his agent was the originator of the statements) good luck in russia alexei.

Geez, can anyone here imagine the JOKE the Wings would have become if we had actually traded Yzerman for this guy back in 96? Yikes! crazy.gif

Thank the Hockey Gods that this did not happen...

But I would like him to be a Red Wing...

At a reasonable price I might add... deal.gif

If that article doesn't make it clear that Yashin only plays for the money, I'm not sure what would. I'm glad this will keep his greedy ass away from the Wings and hopefully outta the NHL.
thanks offsides!

Exactly, and any one of you STILL saying that you would let this guy on our team, at ANY price, are flat-out ridiculous... and I hope you get diarrhea.
