Or if GMSH is feeling particularly loopy, could Yakupov be a high bargaining chip for someone(s) else?
A Gretzky or Hextall clone maybe??

I don't really know the players or their values otherwise I'd put up some examples. But what do you think?
That's how I'd prefer Howson handle a 1st overall draft pick this year, even though it'd probably get him lynched.

Yes, I really am that averse to picking yet another first-round Russian winger. Paranoia levels for that particular brand of hockey player are ratcheted up to 11 right now.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
