Yashin Talks Nabokov, KHL

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

“What actually happened is that the Islanders called me before they took him on waivers,” said Yashin, who left the Islanders on good terms with owner Charles Wang and GM Garth Snow. “I spoke with Garth and I expressed my opinion about how good Evgeni is as a person and as a goalie. What happened after, why he chose not to come to Islanders, I can’t really say anything because it wasn’t my decision.”

Yashin is an unrestricted free agent after the season. Would he consider a return to the NHL?

“Every year is a different situation, a new situation, you never know what’s going to happen,” said Yashin. “My contract is expiring. I will look around at what the best situation is for me next year.”
