There is no point to this and it is only going to become a worse pissing match than it already has.
Yakupov is not going to get you Pacioretty because he is smaller than we want, has concussion issues, and would be playing against the Bruins on a regular basis! If Yakupov received concussions playing against boys, I do not want to see what will become of him when he starts to get smashed around by Chara, Lucic, Thornton, McQuaid, etc...
Montreal has a great young power forward who plays with heart. If you have nothing similar or better to offer, don't bother playing. Hemsky and fricking Paajarvi...give me a ******* break.
No Oiler fan would ever give up Yakupov for Pacioretty, so you've got nothing to worry about. Pacioretty will be an excellent first liner. That's Yakupov's floor in terms of potential.
