One Less Crybaby In The League

TSN is reporting (via the Canadian Press) that former Ottawa Senator and New York Islander Alexei Yashin has signed a one-year contract to play in Russia in 2007/08. This comes not long after Yashin and his agent were in the news complaining about the low-ball offers that he'd been receiving from NHL clubs. Nice to see that the collective intelligence of the NHL GMs came through, for once! Here's hoping he never makes it back to our game, considering what a disappointment and negative factor he's been over his career. (Too bad he still made out like a bandit, financially, though... including having his final four years of a 10-year, $87.5 million contract bought out.)

Now if only Lindros will retire...
