As good as he has gotten and is, his skill set is somewhat replaceable.


He is mostly offense and as good as he is positionaly his stick/backcheck is weak at best. He gets demolished periodicaly.


In short he is another small offensive minded forward on a team chalked full of small offensive minded forwards.


I still would prefer him to Yak at this moment, or Hemsky, but he is what he is.
Replaceable with what? I don't think we have anyone in organisation who could replace him and trading him for another one can't see if it isn't that bold multiplayer trade. Hemsky is out of contract after this season and can't see him being offered a new contract if he doesn't take discount. Same thing with Yakupov, trade him for what? It seems that now only option in trade market for them both is taking quantity over quality. Making trade involving Ebs or Yaks this stage of the season is just plain stupid.
