I am completely convinced that 'how this will make me look someday if..' is an all-consuming factor for Tambo.
He should have that mentality.
Myers has been regressing for 2+ seasons and has a contract that is way too rich for what he is producing while Yakupov is a rookie on his ELC with enormous potential so yeah, that would be a trade where he should wonder "how this will make him look someday" and he could very well look like a jackass if he made that trade.
Tambellini has many many faults but one of them is not him overvaluing his prized assets and reluctantly pulling the trigger. His dealings with declining vet assets on the other hand.....
