From Michael Russo at the Post-Bulletin,
With moderately priced, top two-line centers at a premium this summer and the Wild in the market for one, don’t be surprised if the team investigates signing the enigmatic Alexei Yashin when free agency begins July 1.
Yashin, who has alternated between superstar and sleepwalker throughout his 11-year NHL career, had the final four years of his contract bought out by the New York Islanders this month.
The buyout was finalized this week, meaning teams are free to talk to his representatives but can’t sign him until July 1.
Although the Wild has not yet called his agent, the Wild likely would be interested in Yashin if it could sign him to a one-year deal in the $2 million range.
