Maybe because Yak is a prospect with 0 NHL games, not an elite goal scorer and multiple Rocket winner like Stamkos. Stamkos is a top 3 player in the league, so using him to prove a point about Yakupov makes no sense. Also he is a center and centers have more value than wingers.

PK is a proven number one Dman and he fills a glaring need, give me one good reason to trade him for Yakupov without using the word "potential".
