Yakupov has 8 goals in 11 games playing on a bad team in the KHL. He's as untouchable as Hall, Eberle, RNH, or Schultz.

Given the fact that cap inflation is going to slow down in the new CBA and the Oilers are going to have at least $24 million tied up in the big 4 and who knows how much more for Schultz, they should have no interest in being stuck with a $5.3 million cap hit goalie until 2022. No to Luongo.

If Schneider is on the table, the most they should give up is one of Hemsky/MPS + a protected first. If Vancouver doesn't want to take that, the Oilers should be happy to roll the dice with Dubnyk, while taking a run at someone like Bernier.
