I don't think I'd do this from the Oilers. Philly fans are really overrating Coutourier here, he's come in as a solid third line center, but Yakupov should be a top tier, 40 goal per year game breaker. And he could be more than that. I don't think I'd trade that type of potential for a 2/3 defenseman and a guy who should be a good #2 center. I wouldn't expect Philly to offer any more than that though, I just really don't think moving Yakupov makes much sense for the Oilers unless its for another young star player, and I don't consider Coutourier a young star of that level.
