The Isles have finally, finally bought out the contract of Alexei Yashin, who didn't come close to a point a game in his bloated, overpaid, dramafilled tenure with NYI. The Isles will take a 2.2 Million cap hit for the next four years, but should return some goodwill from their fans, who have hated Yashin since the day he got here.
In the scams and flams dep't. someone needs to get Andy Greene a better agent. He re-signed with the Devs for 2 years at $600,000 a year. Really? For a guy who was solid enough to get decent ice time in every playoff game? That's it? This reeks of kool-aid.
Game 5 tonight. NBC. Ducks with a chance to bring home Lord Stanley's Cup. This is what it's all about. I don't think Ottawa will bring it back to the Skank.
But for hockey's sake, let's hope for more games, eh?
Maybe this'll end up being one of those shocking 5-0 road wins that you sometimes see in Game 5's. Eh, maybe not. It's been fun anyway. Enjoy your hockey.
