That is all fine and well if the GM place value on only what a player has accomplished in the league, but going by this mind set a player like Jagr, Pronger and Selanne would currently have extremely high trade values as former Scoring Champs, top Dmen and MVPs. This is not the case because GM have to perceive potential value out of the players as well. I would argue that Yakupov's potential has a greater value then Coututier current value based on his rookie season and potential.
