Right now he's got a grand total of 0points in 0games in his NHL career, that's most certainly unproven.

Anyway, back on topic.
Evgeni Kuznetsov for Yakupov. Kuznetsov can play both center and wing, and has likewise lit up the KHL and scored clutch goals (led the KHL is game winners last season, with 50% more than the 2nd place tie between Tarasenko and Ruzicka). I realize Edmonton may be wary about the "Russian factor," so a deal here in unlikely. But the Caps aren't going to add significant pieces to move between Kuznetsov and Yakupov.

Other idea:
Marcus Johansson + Dmitry Orlov.
Problem with Kuznetsov is he isn't coming over anytime soon.

Edmonton would be looking for more then a player who has similar potential, but may or may not be playing for them in 2 seasons.
