Clearly, I am *not* making the above statement from Edmonton's perspective.
this - and from a 3rd party source. as a hab fan i agree. i don't have to disparage Yakupov. he'll probably be ovechkin light and score 35-40 per year which is great. but habs are not trading their best young d man since chelios. not. going. to. happen.

i'm also jittery about trading for talented russians. maybe the kovalchuk situation is just an anomaly, but it would be a nightmare to lose yakupov - regardless of what he's saying now.
