So, if the roles were reversed; Edmonton got off to the ****** season and Washington called. Hey, if you want to make a push for the play-offs - how about we give you Erskine, Hendricks, Beagle, Crabb and Hamerlick and you give us Yakupov, if he was down in the OHL or AHL, would you do that? That is exactly what the OP suggested, but reversed.
keep telling yourself that... It is as 'idiotic' to claim that guys like Smid, Petry, Hemsky, Gagner etc are spare parts\non-factors.

And comparing Kuznetsov to Yakupov is not fair... If EDM was looking to make the playoffs and WSH calls asking for Klefbom (our top prospect not in NHL) for NHLers who we might help then EDM might consider.. Yakupov is already in NHL and producing.. No one on WSH (and strangely enough in PIT) has more goals than him.
