Is there a bigger embarrassment than Alexei Yashin?
Not that his disappearing act is anything new but after showing a flicker of interest during the regular season, before he was injured, it was thought by some and hoped for by the Islanders that coach Ted Nolan might be able to get him inspired for the playoffs. Beyond that, when a guy has a 10-year, $90-million contract, you hope that would pique his interest. Guess again. Nolan ended up benching him for extended periods.
If he had any class, Yashin would walk away from his contract.
