I'd rather get a proven first line guy for that price.
That proposal is not crazy. That trade is a stupid trade for the Panthers to make, but it is not crazy. That is what it would take to move the #1 overall pick. If nobody can see that... well... sorry guys!
Edmonton isn't moving any of their top players. Yakupov included. You'd have to do something stupid in order to obtain him. It's not up for consideration and it's not up for contemplation.
