The Islanders are finally done paying Alexei Yashin

The story has become infamous. The New York Islanders acquired star forward Alexei Yashin in 2001 at an amazingly high cost, trading future Norris Trophy winner Zdeno Chara, the 2011 second overall pick (which turned out to be Jason Spezza) and Bill Muckalt for the Russian forward.
