Yakupov for Brent Seabrook ... give Schultz a rock to develop around and take the offensive pressure of Klefbom, Marcinin, etc. Oilers are a Patrick Roy and an Adam Foote away from contending for a decade. If a head has to roll IMO its Yak. 1) Hall loves the camera and is a clear next captain. 2) Eberle is just a beauty in every way. 3) Nuge has Gretzky/Crosby/Datsyuk/Lidstrom'esque hockey sense ... soft shoulder or not, if he plays perimeter hell put up 70+ points till 2025. Yakupov is a less talented shorter and slower Ovechkin who is probably one trolley track hit from Chara/Phaneuf/Kronwall/Bieksa/Sutton from getting re-concussed and running back to the KHL anyways.
If Im Lowe Im shopping Yak for a Dman and Hemsky/Gagner for Luongo or Bernier.
