They need elite forward talent, and Yak fits the bill.
Jets were 12th in scoring, and 26th in GA last year. Goals for aren't the problem - goals against are, and trading one of their best (if not their best) shut down defensemen won't improve that. I'm surprised that a Boston fan would advocate loading up on high-scoring forwards - if anything, the Jets have a similar make-up to Boston in terms of how their goal scoring is spread out amongst the forwards.
Trouba has great potential, but is probably 3-4 years away from the big show.
Yakupov has tremendous potential, but I wouldn't trade Bogo for him at this point if I were the Jets GM.
