The guys on the sportsnet panel during intermissions of the Oilers broadcasts are clowns. Last night, I can't remember which one said it but he mentioned that he would trade one of the Oilers 1st overall picks this summer...
I honestly can not think of a package that would be worth trading Hall, RNH or Yakupov right now..
A lot of media people talk about trading Yakupov but Yak is on pace for 46pts and 20goals in a 82 game season playing third line minutes as a rookie and usually with guys like Horcoff and Jones.
Yak is not getting the same opportunities as Hall and RNH had in their first years and he is still succeeding. He also plays with that raw emotion that everyone is saying the Oilers need in their forwards.
More nights than not Yak has one of the best work ethics on the ice, he never stops trying.
Trading him now would be a giant mistake..
