Yakupov is not on the table. Just because he's the newest of the big 4 doesn't mean he holds the least value or that Edmonton would just give him away, he very easily could be better than Hall or Eberle.
He's scoring at a higher rate in the KHL at age 18 than Ovy or Malkin were in Russian pro leagues at the same age. You don't trade a no.1 pick like this without letting him even play a game for you unless he's pulling a Lindros.
Also Schneider took some pot shots at the Oilers, not sure if the Oilers have forgotten about that.
I would be open to the idea of Luongo in Edmonton, but it depends a lot on what the price would be, I like the guy, but my guess is Toronto will offer more than Edmonton is willing to go to.
And also yeah, given that we're in the same division I don't see the two GMs dealing much.
