If this is to suggest, some how, that a 2nd line center bigger then Sam Gagner is worth more then an ELITE Talent, who will become a goal scorer and major offensive threat for this team, then I think the point is being missed.
Why would you compare Yakupov to Smyth, Hemsky and others?
Further, why would you compare Staal to Gagner with only size being a qualifier?
You're right something is being missed.
