Remember that news of a potential Alexei Yashin-Islanders reunion? Not so fast.
When reached by telephone yesterday, Yashin said he'll assess all options as an unrestricted free agent; the 37-year-old center, who was bought out by the Islanders in 2007, said he's in no rush to make a decision.
The story, which appeared in Tuesday's paper, can be found here.
Islanders team owner Charles Wang's media blitz continues this afternoon, when he'll appear with Mike Francesa on WFAN at 1p.m. I'll be down at Supreme Court for jury duty, but should be a worthwhile listen. Very intrigued to see if Wang addresses the Yashin situation as well as any additional hockey questions from fans.
Wang will also appear with Boomer and Carton Friday at 8 a.m.
