That's so not worth it.

Stepan is off limits and Girardi should not be traded unless we know we're signing Suter to eat his minutes. Depth on D is so important, and with the potential long-term loss of Sauer, we should be looking to add to it if anythin, not trade a guy who plays 30 minutes a night and then hope Erixon or McIlrath can be the exception (like McDonagh and Staal) rather than the rule.

As good as Yakupov is, we're close to being an elite team. It's not the time to trade multiple key players who are on very good contracts for one guy. I'd rather go hard after Parise or Suter, and if Suter, then I'm sure we can offer DZ+ for a young-ish goal scoring winger on a good contract (Ryan, Pavelski) or see if the price for Nash and his huge contract came back to a reasonable value (meaning no DZ, Stepan, McD or Kreider). To be more clear, I'd only trade DZ for a winger on a good contract. I'm not giving him up for a 7.8 winger who usually isn't even a point a game player.
