I'd say they are fairy even right now. That said I'm glad we got Gally over Yakupov only because he fills a need we've desperately longed for.

I'd love to make a trade to acquire Yakupov and get a Galchenyuk/Yakupo line. One can dream, can't he?
I agree, it's a dream, and obviously the Oilers are extremely pleased with Yakupov. Who wouldn't be?
