Yeah the rumor makes no sense.

I don't think I'd even trade Subban straight up for the first overall honestly.

Subban is going to be a better hockey player than 3 out of this year's 5 top picks. Imagine if we trade Subban, pick a guy and in 3 years when Subban is in Norris contention we find out the guy we picked is some kind of glorified Benoit Pouliot. Not cool. You don't trade young star players for high draft picks because when you have high draft picks you hope for them to become young star players. We're not talking about Crosbys here, the top guys in this draft are super hyped but so were all the busts that were picked before.

Again think Benoit Pouliot : he's super skilled, big and he skates very fast! great goal scorer! what could go wrong? (what went wrong is between his ears and he barely developed since his draft. it could happen with Yakupov for all we know)
