Seems a bit early to worry about this but ok.
Regardless, whether you think KHL is a legitimate threat or not, I still believe if you're going to trade one of the Fab 5. Yakupov is probably the one as long as the return is Size in your top 6 - ie Simmonds - B.Schenn
Yak may not have yet established himself as a bona fide scoring threat, but there's a good possibility he'll be better than both those guys put together. Simmonds' production is heavily dependent on prime PP time, he doesn't kill penalties, he's simply not a difference maker. Schenn is pretty much the same size as Yak, two years older and has yet to establish himself as much of anything at all.
