I would rather have PK Subban than six out of the last ten first overall picks. Might even want Subban over Tavares based on how Montreal's team is set up. So make that 7/10.

Yakupov is a good player, he's improving. Still hasn't scored 30 goals. Still hasn't played a whole season. Still hasn't played 20+ minutes a game.

Subban has proven to be a top-2 defenceman. Subban has proven to be elite both offensively and defensively. This year Subban is at the very least one of the top-5 defenceman in the league. Might even win the Norris!

You can only hope that Yakupov reaches that sort of potential.

Edmonton probably doesn't want to trade Yakupov right now because of his potential. That's fine, Habs surely don't want to trade Galchenyuk. But to post such poorly informed, nonsensical arguments like "Start with Price" "Start with Subban"? Goes to show the quality of some posters opinion and perspective. Let's hope this thread gets locked.
Heh..."wow" is about all I can say to rather having Subban than 7/10 of the top picks.

We're only a few months removed from the "Subban isn't worth $4-5 mil. If he wants that, trade him. Edmonton needs defense, maybe we can get Yakupov???"

Why the thread lock request? That is the worst thing about these boards- the need to lock a thread up every 15 minutes.
