To the last 3 posters:

It is not uncommon or unthinkable to give up the only proven player in a deal and still win the trade in the long run.

Sure there's risk involved but it works both ways. Player could bust, team A loses. Player could turn into a superstar, team A wins bigtime. Not all NHL gms are as risk averse as you all imply, and Yakupov is certainly a very valuable asset despite never having played in the NHL. I'm positive gms would agree on that point at least.
