I cut and pasted this from the NOOF. If it were to pan out, do you think Sarnia could re-coup some of the "lost" draft picks by trading Yakupov to a heavy-duty contender? Whatttaya think he'd be worth in terms of draft picks for a team that wanted to re-stock the cupboard? I bet that it would make the Soo/Windsor deal for Campbell last year look like a fire sale...
Too bad the NHL and KHL still have no formal working deal. Seems to me Yak can go to Russia, who is going to stop him and if he "violates" the contract with Edmonton what are they going to do renounce their rights to him?
