from SovSport (rough Russian translation),

The famous 38-year-old forward Alexei Yashin, who after last season, parted with CSKA Moscow, intends to pursue a career in North America. A variant of the “Motorist” from his home in Yekaterinburg longer interests him
.
- 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.

- In 38 years? This decision was influenced by both an example of Jaromir Jagr, who successfully returned to the NHL in the same venerable age of hockey’s standards?

- Alex feels that a few years in the big hockey he still has. With the “physics”, everything is smooth, with a spirit - too.

You know what time it is, everyone!!!
*cue 70s gameshow music* ♪ ♫ ♪♪ ♫ ♫♪ ♫

Its time for the annual "Yashin back to the NHL" story!

The festivities are brought to you by, come on you all know his name- Mark Gandler!

Wow... has it been a year already? Well, look at your calendar- its the third week of July! That, as Im sure you all know, is the traditional "Yashin back to the NHL" week.

♫♪ ♫ Its the most... predictable tiiiime of the year! ♪ ♫

For those of you interested in taking a trip down memory lane to "Yashin back to the NHL" rumors of years past while we get ready to play again this year, here are a few to get you in the "Yashin back to the NHL" spirit:

2010 link (started: July 16, 2010)

2011 link (started, July 19, 2011)

Like any other traditional holiday week, "Yashin back to the NHL" always goes the same way- Yashin has a super-cool offer from an NHL team (usually hinted to be the Islanders) comparisons are made to Jagr or some other older (preferably Russian or former eastern bloc) players, but he ultimately decides not to take it. Sure, you know EXACTLY how its gonna go... but you know how St Patricks Days gonna go too and that doesnt stop you! Dont let the complete and utter predictibility of this annual holiday take away from the tradition and deep, profound meaning that is behind the "Yashing coming back" spirit.

So... get out those dark turtlenecks and your old CMC Yash jerseys, everyone! Celebrate like its 2007!

Its just remarkable how much like clockwork this really is.
The last thread was mere hours off of being EXACTLY 1Y ago.

Like I said in the last post of last years thread:

All the best, Yash... hope you have a good season.
See you next year when you are working out here on LI and the rumors start up once again.
