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

No.
Disagree. If the first overall was a tentative pick where all likely candidates were not going to make an immediate NHL impact then I would say you have a case to be made. Yakupov will be in the NHL next year and will be competing with Kreider for the calder. I'm not saying Yakupov will be better now, or ever, but it's certainly a trade you make. I will eat crow if I am wrong.
