And yes, with Ovechkin slumping and Semin uncertain to stick around, we could use another dynamic winger, especially one who plays like Yakupov.

That said Columbus or Edmonton or whoever aren't gonna trade first overall for 3 firsts that aren't in the top 5. That's beyond wishful thinking. All one of them has to imagine is trading Stamkos, Tavares, RNH for 3 lower players from those drafts and they'd be huddled in the corner crying at the thought.
Have people learned nothing from this year? Our center depth is piss poor, but people aren't opposed to moving 3 1sts for a winger? I don't give a damn how dynamic he is.
