Oddly enough the Clifford trade I thought about the exact same myself last night
I think this type of deal is fair, we don't burn a bridge via offer-sheet and we get a solid 3rd liner.

Having said that I would still trade our 2014 first for him..

Vanek-RNH-Yakupov would be a nice 2nd line.
I don't see why Vanek wouldn't be a possibility to extend with the Oilers. He signed with the team once before and the team is much more interesting now than it was back then.
