He will be a champion and I don't want him anywhere other than with us.

I would trade Yak... I think he will be among the best, but his trade value will also be among the highest. You can get two B+ assets to fill in holes from Yak. You can get 1 B+ and some A- prospects for Eberle (not enough)... and if you trade Hall or RNH you create new holes to fill.
I disagree. Nails character is one of a kind, sort of like Taylor Halls. Both of these guys wanna win and its obvious that they are team first guys. You dont get a lot of guys that play with heart, intensity and character every night like Hallsy, Gags and Yak . That type of player is so important to teams. Its a mentality that this team needs so badly. Getting rid of it would just be detrimental.

Not saying that Eberle doesnt wanna win but he certainley lacks heart on some nights, like today. And its frustrating to see because you know he can do better.

If we trade Eberle it will bite us. If we trade yakupov, it will bite us even more. We havent seen the best of yakupov, not even close. But we may have seen the best of eberle already.

a good problem for us to have.
