Yakupov may have more value to the Oilers, but he wouldn't for the Flyers. Couturier is vital to the Flyer's success because of the division that they play in. He'll be expected to play against the likes of Crosby or Malkin, Tavares, Kovalchuk, and Richards for at least the next five to ten years. Giroux is their best player, but Couturier might end up being the most irreplaceable should they lose him. Yakupov is a great player and I'm sure he'll have a great career, but I'm not convinced the Flyers would make that move even if it was just straight up, let alone adding Simmonds.
