Any Rangers fan sitting in the Garden and complaining about losing Callahan and Girardi for Taylor Hall should be immediately ejected from the building by security for being mentally unstable and posing a safety risk to others around him.

I don't know where Oilers management stands on Yakupov but I wouldn't be surprised if he's available. It seems like something at least worth considering especially when you take into account the KHL factor if he becomes unhappy as well as the resurgence of Sam Gagner. That team has enough offense without Yakupov.
