It makes sense. The Yotes already have OEL to be their #1, Gormely and Rundblad should both be top 4 soon enough. They have Klesla as a solid vet. Schlemko, Stone and Summers are very solid young players, in fact before his injury Schlemko was playing with Klesla on the shutdown pairing. They could certainly use a top scoring forward in return, especially if Whitney and Doan don't resign. Both are said to be hesitant to commit if the team isn't staying. I think a deal around Yandle+ for Yakupov makes sense, i would not want the Oilers to trade the 1st straight up for him. Yandle is very good and had a career year the year before last but he isn't worth a 1st overall by himself IMO no matter how many times people on HF ridiculously call him "just a prospect".
