IF you trade him it's for an established player (Bobby Ryan) not a LESS established player.

Absolutely correct.

And from the other side, why would the Oilers or Jackets trade a 1st overall for an unestablished player like Kreider. 1st overall picks only get traded for established stars.

Gaborik, prospect not named Kreider, 1st for the 1st overall.

Getting Yakupov while shedding 7.5 mil to sign Parise/Suter = priceless.
