If they could get Despres, Harrington/Dumoulin, Kennedy and maybe their 2013 1st for Yakupov (and maybe something minor) they'd give their team that much better balance and would be better for it. The return may not be "sexy" but it would be beneficial and I think the value is there. Penguins will be tempted to add a scoring winger for Crosby.

Disagree! Better options than making a powerhouse even better. Other teams have better prospects and role players. If I did move Yak it would be for quality.
