Speaking of Alan Hahn, he has some great information on the Isles and their recent moves.
Like some of their trades and signings might have been designed to keep the Yashin-haters out of the locker room. Hahn leaves it to us to guess who the Alexei Yashin Hate Club members were. Hahn also notes the Islanders can buyout Yashin next season at terms that aren’t horrible: $20 million over 10 years, which would count as just $2 million per season against the cap.
Yashin better have that breakout season the Islanders have been expecting for the past few seasons.
