Having said that, I do see how it is a lot to give up. It does gut the team quite a bit. You would need something else. Perhaps Toronto would sweeten the pot with a roster player. Edm is willing to add a pick and/or prospect (not named klefbom or nurse) as well.
Take Toronto out of the deal completely. Work a deal around Edm and Philly.

Yakapov has the talent to be a star but it's far from a sure thing. There have been many talented players that didn't live up to their potential.
