Given that Nash is a severely overpaid 70 point player, I'd argue that Yakupov on an ELC is more valuable to everyone but a contender.

If these two players are worth what you implicitly think they are, boy did Columbus ever miss the boat by not pulling the trigger on the deal the Rangers offered them.
ease up there tiger. There is a big difference between a proven 30+ goal scoring olympian compared to a 18 year old kid.
