Not even close! I seriously can't see him getting an offer sheet like that. Would that type of trade make us better now or in the future? I don't think so.

It's fine to like a player and want him on your team but seriously, this is a team game and there's no sense in spending all of your present and future assets to acquire one player that MIGHT end up being a special player.
I beg to differ. Yakupov was 2012's 1st overall pick. He is a scoring machine. I'm pretty sure many teams would dish out five 1st for him.
