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.
I think you're undervaluing Couturier a bit here. Couturier has #1 center potential. His potential isn't as high as Yakupov, but it's still extremely high.
