I wouldn't do it either...
Eller has quality top-6 written all over him, and perhaps even an outside chance at being a 70+pt player once he fully matures.
add in a pick that could very well turn out as good, or better, than Yakupov (Grigorenko, Galeynychuk, Dumba, Murray), & a 2nd...
Yakupov (tonights injury aside) doesn't strike me as being so dominant or such a "sure thing" that we are talking about a Crosby/Ovechkin/Malkin type "sure thing".
think about it from last year's perspective... I'd say Yakupov is not unlike RNH was last year in the sense that he was pretty much the consensus #1, but not the "generational talent" type prospect...
would you trade Eller, Landeskog/Larsson/Huberdeau & Musil/Rattie/Jurco for RNH? As good as RNH is, I'd say no.
