15 Worst Contracts in American Sports History

14 of 21

3. Alexei Yashin, New York Islanders

Contract: 10 years, $87.5 million

An atrocious contract, it crippled the Islanders’ front office and made Yashin untradeable. He was so awful by 2007 that the Islanders bought out his contract for over $17 million. He has played the last several years in Russia, but there have been talks of him rejoining the Islanders in 2011. I’m serious. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Kevork Djansezian)
