His argument presumes his infallibility at predicting future success. He wouldn't have traded a young 60-point scoring Iginla for the amazing-potential Stefan because, well, he just wouldn't have.

In this case, his argument is that Yakupov is certainly going to score 50 goals one day, and because Ryan certainly never will, Yakupov = greater chance of Cup. There are at least 3 false leaps of logic in there, but whatever. 50 is a pretty number.
