From a Russian website:

Yashin, considering the transition to the NHL - said last night told “Soviet Sport” Sergei Begishevo player’s agent, Mark Gandler. - Moreover, we already have a concrete offer from a club


Anyone been following his play as of late? He could be a diamond in the rough if he's still got anything left in the tank.

Isn't Yashin still under contract to the Islanders for the next 30 years? :giggle:

Even if this is true - which I'm not sure I believe, because Gandler has been saying this sh!t for years and every year it hasn't worked out - Yashin wasn't even close to the best player on his own KHL team last year. The only reason an NHL team would sign him would be to give him bonuses in order to reach the salary floor.

Why not Dallas looking to put together the oldest line in NHL history with Whitney - Yashin - Jagr?

He's pretty spry for a 60 year old. i think he also has those half-tennis balls on the end of his stick for when he gets tired holding it up.

This is so childish. It's like, "WE have an NHL offer!!! WE HAVE AN NHL OFFER!!!!!!" They run and let everyone know and it's like, "Dude, anyone can get an offer from the Isles."

Exactly! I have an offer from the Isles, but I keep telling them I'll only play for the Devils.... Or the Wild. :rolleyes:

Btw, when they say he has a "concrete offer" from an NHL team are we sure that doesn't have another meaning? Like the Isles want to bury him in some concrete for his miserable performance or pay him in old construction materials or something?

I'd imagine even playing for the Isles is better than playing for some team in the KHL

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

You folks have this all wrong. An NHL club has offered to send 4 yards of concrete to his home!
