You aren't getting any of them straight up for Staal, and you aren't getting Yakupov for him either. Again, even ignoring years of control.
I don't know why I have to keep pointing this out, but Staal isn't moving unless the other team knows he's willing to sign with them. That's a given I don't know why people act otherwise.

Anyways: My impression is that Yakupov projects more like a P. Kane than a Stamkos. Big difference. I think Staal for the #1 overall is at least in the ballpark value-wise. If you want to say the Pens would have to add something more I'm perfectly fine with that.

We still make out a little too well regardless IMO.
