He fits us besides style he also has less then a million cap hit for 2 more seasons which helps us out SO MUCH.

I honestly think trading them Del Zotto, either Hags or Zucc depending on who is clicking more and Boyle/2nd round pick would go through. Then we reduce our surplus of play makers. Reduce our cap. Increase our offense. We then would have a hole in our defense but I think thats easier to fix then our cap issues and lack of scoring.
I would sure give up Del Zotto, Hagelin, Zuccarello, and a few others to land Yakupov.
