The Oilers would deserve to sit and watch Yakupov become a 50 goal scorer in Pittsburgh, win multiple Cups there, and watch Pittsburgh go on to become the most talented dynasty the NHL has seen since the 80s Oilers if they did that.

Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Yakupov, Letang ... forget it. Crosby + Yakupov in particular would be lights out.

Staal freaking struggles to score 50 points, let alone 50 goals.

If the Oilers made such a deal, honestly, it would be worse than Pronger being dealt for Lupul, the only lower moment as a franchise I could envision would be when we traded Gretzky. Unless the team wins a Cup in the immediate 2-3 years, I would never forgive management for doing that.

Gregor needs to wake up. LOL, Pittsburgh would say yes before Lowe/Tamby/whoever the dummy in charge is had a chance to even say the full deal. Not to mention Pittsburgh would be gifted Yakupov at a cap saving $3.5-ish million salary for 3 full years.
