Yashin Not Planning On Attending Camp With The Isles

News: Alexei Yashin is not planning on attending camp with the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Alexei Yashin stated that he doesn't know what this season has in store for him. Truth is the Isles don't really have any room for him and if he does plan on playing in the NHL this season, he is probably better off looking for another opportunity.

Yashin Still Skating With The Islanders

News: Alexei Yashin is still skating with several of the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Alexei Yashin has not been extended an informal invite to camp but plans on skating with the team Wednesday and Thursday. The Isles are still being charged $2.204 million a season against the cap for his buyout, so it would certainly be ironic if they did sign him to a contract to play this season, but we certainly wouldn't bet on that happening.

Yashin Skates With Several Islanders

News: Alexei Yashin skated with several Islanders on Tuesday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Sources still believe that the chance of Alexei Yashin signing with the Islanders are slim to none, but there might be some team out there interested in his services.

Isles Only Team Interested In Signing Yashin

News: The Islanders seem to be the only team interested in signing Yashin, according to Newsday.
Analysis: This news comes from Yashin's agent Mark Gandler. Even the Isles have slowed down in their pursuit of Yashin, who may have to go back to the KHL where he does apparently have several interested teams. There are plenty of rumors floating about that the Islanders will make a big move ahead of next Monday's vote for a new coliseum, but signing Yashin may force the team's fans to revolt.

Isles Interested In Yashin?

News: Both general manager Garth Snow of the Islanders and Yashin's agent Mark Gandler have confirmed to Newsday that the two sides have discussed a potential reunion with the 37-year-old Russian center.
Analysis: Yashin isn't going to help too many people as a high-level fantasy guy any more, and even in the KHL last season he wasn't anywhere near a point-per-game player. However, he still has the talent to play in the NHL, and he could provide a nice veteran presence and secondary source of scoring if the Isles decided to go that route.

C Yashin to Yaroslavl Locomotiv

News: Former New York Islanders captain Alexei Yashin will play next season with Locomotiv Yaroslavl of the Russian Super League after failing to get a NHL contract offer to his liking. Yashin, who had the final four seasons of his 10-year contract bought out by the Islanders in June, agreed to terms Friday on a one-year deal with the Russian team he played with during the 2004-05 NHL lockout. Yashin had 18 goals and 32 assists in 58 games last season, his second as Islanders captain. He never regained his early-season scoring touch after spraining his right knee in November. The 33-year-old center missed 24 games overall because of the injury.
Analysis: Financial terms weren't immediately available. The contract doesn't provide Yashin with an out-clause to return to the NHL next season, his agent Todd Diamond told The Associated Press in a phone interview. "He's committed to them," Diamond said. "They were very aggressive the entire time. They told us they wanted him and they told us they wanted to win a championship there as they have in the past and they felt that Alexei was the guy." Diamond said three or four NHL teams made what he called solid offers to sign Yashin, but added there was disappointment in the deals presented to his client.

Yashin has contract bought out

News: New York Newsday reports Alexei Yashin had the remaining four years of his contract bought out by the Islanders. The contract can be bought out for two-thirds of what the remaining monies were.
Analysis: Yashin will be an unrestricted free agent and he has expressed an interest in returning to the Ottawa Senators. Sure, why not? They had their most successful season last year in reaching the Stanley Cup Finals. It is extremely unlikely the feeling is mutual about his return by Ottawa brass. He is now an unrestricted free agent.

Yashin blanked on Thursday

News: Alexei Yashin's point-scoring streak was snapped at seven games in Thursday's contest against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Yashin still has three goals and eight points over the past seven games. He remains a must-start in all Fantasy leagues for the final two games of the season.

Yashin extends point streak

News: Alexei Yashin scored in Tuesday's game against the Rangers, as the Islanders won the season series from their rivals, five games to three.
Analysis: Yashin extended his point streak to seven games with three goals and five assists. He remains a must-start in most Fantasy formats.

Yashin extends point streak

News: Alexei Yashin managed a power play goal in Tuesday's game against the Devils, extending his point streak to four games. He has managed a goal on the man advantage for the second straight game.
Analysis: Yashin has posted two goals and two assists during the stretch and has been the only consistent member of the Islanders offense lately.

Yashin demoted to fourth line

News: New York Newsday reports Alexei Yashin was demoted to the fourth line in Tuesday's game at Tampa Bay, as coach Ted Nolan was steamed that he did not cover Vincent Lecavalier in the second period, leading to a goal. "Whether it's our captain or not, you have to perform. At this time of the year, there's no excuses."
Analysis: Yashin has managed just two points in six games since returning to the lineup after a knee injury. Keep him reserved in all Fantasy leagues until he can officially re-emerge from the coach's doghouse. The move is likely temporary, however.

Yashin back on the scoresheet

News: Alexei Yashin posted a goal in Tuesday's game at Montreal, the 14th of the season and his first since Jan. 15. It was his first point in three games since returning from his knee injury.
Analysis: Yashin is starting to build up his stamina and his ice time will steadily increase as a result. He remains a solid No. 2 or 3 Fantasy center in all leagues.

Yashin returns to the lineup

News: Alexei Yashin (knee) returned to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers. He was scoreless with two shots on goal in 10:33 of ice time.
Analysis: Despite the scoreless game, it appears safe to get Yashin back into the active Fantasy lineup in all leagues.

C Yashin still out on Monday

News: Islanders captain Alexei Yashin, who missed his 16th straight game (knee) on Monday at N.Y. Rangers, is expected to return Thursday in the rematch on the Island.
Analysis: Keep Yashin reserved in all Fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in consecutive games without any lingering effects of the injury.

C Yashin targeting Thursday

News: New York Newsday is reporting Alexei Yashin (knee tendinitis) is targeting a return to the lineup on Thursday against the Rangers. Coach Ted Nolan said that he would like Yashin to put in some practice time before returning to the lineup.
Analysis: Look for Yashin to line up with newly-acquired Ryan Smyth and All-Star Jason Blake when he is healthy enough to return. He will be a must-start when he finally gets back on the ice and that look to be during Fantasy Week 23 (March 12-18).

C Yashin still on the mend

News: Shawn Bates (lower body) and Alexei Yashin (knee) each missed their seventh consecutive game on Tuesday night at Toronto.
Analysis: The duo remains day to day, with Bates likely a little closer to a return than the center. Keep them both reserved in all Fantasy leagues until they can officially return and prove their health in consecutive games without any lingering effects of the injury.
